'Using overseas expeditions, local training and ongoing training, we challenge young Bermudians to harness their full potential and develop skills for life."
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 selfconfidence 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 Trainings
- Expedition overseas in Tanzania, Nepal, or Costa Rica
- Training and Engagement of Families/Support Network
Raleigh Bermuda is a proud member of Inter-Agency Committee for Children and Families and one of only ten Charities certified at the highest national standards of governance by The Bermuda National Standards Committee.
