"I enjoyed every minute of the expedition, even the down times. It really changed my attitude towards life. Being able to see how people lived and how they appreciate their lives really helped me to realize what I have and appreciate it."

Sade Fox, Malaysia '07


"My Raleigh experience opened my eyes to diverse cultures and people. I now appreciate what I have. This was a very good opportunity and I'm glad I did it."

Jamel Harvey, Namibia '07


"My Raleigh Experience has been an amazing one. Everyday brought a new determination to get things done, knowing that they would be helping someone who really needs it. Patience, determination, and the many other skills that I learned are sure to benefit me in life in everything I do."

Shellvina Caines (Malaysia '07)


"Raleigh has taught me a lot of things - self-confidence, leadership skills, and how to pay attention in life."

Melvin Simons Jr, Namibia '07


"I made alot of true friends while I was in Namibia. Not just with the natives but with the other participants too. This experience has changed my life in many different ways-such as learning how to fend for myself like cooking and staying healthy to giving myself confidence to make new friends and deal with difficult situations. I learned not to take advantage of what I've got because I might not ever get it back. And most of all never to doubt myself! Always tell yourself that you can do it and it will happen eventually!"

Shakira Jones, Namibia '07

Volunteer of the Year 6Dec18 for websiteJawonday Smith

Jawonday completed his expedition to Costa Rica & Nicaragua in 2012 and has been volunteering with Raleigh Bermuda ever since. In 2017, he returned overseas to volunteer again with Raleigh Borneo for 10 weeks to continue his personal and leadership development. Whether it's as a Leader for our Training Camps or as a Mentor to our young Bermudians, Jawonday continues to be an integral part of our Raleigh Family and Programmes.



“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
