How to apply?
Raleigh Hong Kong selects committed and determined young people aged between 16 and 24, who are residents of Hong Kong, to represent Hong Kong to go on an overseas expedition. Young people with a desire to develop themselves and at the same time help others to improve the environment are ideal applicants. For all candidates, the Raleigh experience they have during the recruitment phase will be the chance to meet others and widen their horizons. The only requirement is able to communicate in basic English.
Raleigh expeditions need well-qualified staff to act as youth leaders, scientific officers, mountaineers, canoeists or medical and safety officers. Individuals aged 25 or above with a genuine interest in youth development and the projects undertaken by Raleigh can apply. Staff will be classified as unpaid volunteers and are required to fund their own airfare and daily living costs. They are expected to be on the expedition for 10 weeks.
With the submission of the completed application form, applicants will be invited to an assessment weekend to be held in Hong Kong. Purposes of the assessment weekend are:
To provide an opportunity for young people to better understand themselves, breakthrough their limits and explore their potentials;
To select a suitable candidate to go on the expedition, and
To experience the environment and scenario that venturers may encounter in a real expedition (5 to 10-week overseas voluntary services).
It is by itself a positive learning experience and self-developing opportunity to all those who participate. We believe that by participating in an assessment weekend, you will get to know yourself better. So, it is just a small step forward at the start of your Raleigh journey and kick-starts your big step in life.
