Spend this summer supporting the conservation of one of the oldest rainforests in the world, home to thousands of species that are rapidly disappearing. You could also be supporting a team of young volunteers building Kindergartens in rural communities, giving them greater access to education.

Spend your summer in one of the Earth’s true remaining wildernesses, supporting young people on sustainable development projects. Borneo’s rainforests are some of the oldest in the world and home to thousands of species but they are rapidly disappearing.

We have a variety of volunteer roles available. You could either be based on one of our community, environment or adventure projects, working directly with 17-24 year olds or you could work to support the safe and sustainable delivery of our expeditions from our local headquarters.

Apply today as a volunteer manager on Raleigh’s 8 and 13 week summer expeditions and you could help conserve Borneo’s incredibly rich biodiversity and help improve the lives of the local indigenous communities. We work in Sabah, in the northern part of the island, which 30% of people are still living below the poverty line.

If you are in a project based role you could work on an environmental project, helping to increase scientist’s access into the conservation area and supporting their research; improve access to education by building a kindergarten on a community project; or trek through the heart of Borneo’s rainforest on an adventure project. 

If you opt for a support role in our headquarters, you will work alongside our permanent country staff with other team members. You will still get the opportunity to visit our projects sites, visiting parts of the country never accessed by tourists and meeting local communities.

Please see below for a list of the opportunities available: 

  • Project Managers
  • Adventure Projects Managers (must be Mountain Leader qualified or have extensive experience in trekking or other outdoor activities)
  • Medics (doctors, nurses and paramedics who must have two years post qualification experience)
  • Administrators
  • Communications Officers
  • Logistics Coordinators
  • Photographers

Whatever your role, embark on a Raleigh expedition this summer and you will experience living and working in a dramatically different setting whilst improving the lives of others.

Apply today for your chance to live and work in a remote setting in some of the oldest rainforests in the world.
