Our Mission:

'Using overseas expeditions, local training and ongoing training, we challenge young Bermudians to harness their full potential and develop skills for life."

 

Our Vision:

Raleigh's vision is of a Bermuda where young people work together, regardless of social background and culture - challenged to raise their aspirations, supported to believe in themselves and inspired to be part of a global community active in making their world a better place.
 

Founded in 2004 by Michael Spurling, Raleigh International Bermuda (Registered Charity # 710) is a branch of Raleigh International (U.K.). The programme structure and philosophy of the Bermuda organisation are thus based on internationally recognised principals of experiential learning and are designed to help young people develop skills and self-confidence in a fun yet challenging environment beyond the classroom and workplace. Our goal is to empower young Bermudians to set positive goals and take control of their lives. By helping them to see that they are stronger than they thought possible, they are able to realise their full potential and effectively manage the 'day-to-day' risks they face including drugs, alcohol, crime, bullying, loss of motivation, low self-esteem, and lack of self-confidence.
 
Our intensive year-long programme provides Young People with:

  • One-on-One Coaching
  • Team Building Activities and Group Challenges
  • Outdoor Survival Training
  • 10-Week Expedition overseas in Tanzania, Malaysia, or Costa Rica & Nicaragua
  • Training and Engagement of Families/Support Network

 

Raleigh Bermuda is a proud member of The Centre on Philanthropy and one of only ten Charities certified at the higest national standards of governance by The Bermuda National Standards Committee.

“Not only is Raleigh Bermuda a journey of personal development, it is a journey of community and understanding. I've completed two expeditions and worked with Raleigh Bermuda for the past five years. I've worked with many people who have wanted the betterment for themselves and others, there comes a point in time where you have to hop up off your seat and realize you have the potential to change the world.” Jawonday
