It is a unique environment and one that needs conserving for future generations. Volunteer as a Project Manager this summer and help preserve Imbak Canyon, in Sabah- a class one protected rainforest.
Spend your summer in the heart of the Bornean rainforest, one of Earth’s true remaining wildernesses.
Raleigh International is seeking Volunteer Project Managers to join our international teams in Malaysian Borneo. You could spend 8 or 13 weeks this year supporting young people on sustainable development projects
As a Project Manager you, and at least one other Project Manager, will work with a group of around 12 17-24 year olds. You will divide your time between delivering the sustainable aims of the projects, whilst supporting the personal development of the volunteers. You do not need specific project management skills for this role and all volunteer managers will receive comprehensive training from us.
You could support any one of our three expedition phases; community, environment or adventure. Our community projects focus on providing access to safe water and sanitation and improving community resilience. Raleigh’s environmental work is focused on natural resource management projects, protecting and conserving some of the oldest rainforests in the world and some of its rarest and most diverse species. On the adventure project you could trek through some of Borneo’s incredible rainforests whilst helping develop the skills and resilience of the volunteers. You will be based in the heart of the jungle, experiencing nature like never before. Help preserve Borneo’s incredibly rich biodiversity and change the life of local people whilst supporting young volunteers from all different backgrounds. Don’t delay – apply today for this life-changing experience.
