Raleigh seek young adventurers

Youth development group Raleigh International is going public today seeking applications for its latest programme, which commences next month.

The programme will allow young Bermudians to take part in a ten-week expedition over the summer to Malaysia, Central America or Tanzania.

Executive director Kristin White said the group would have a recruitment booth in Washington Mall from 2pm to 5pm today.

“We’ve been getting the word out about Raleigh but it’s still very common to hear people say that they’ve never heard about our programme,” she explained.

“So, we’ve decided to do a recruitment event for Saturday to give people a chance to find out more. Alumni will be on hand to talk about their experience, and we’ll have applications available for people to sign up.”

To sign up for Raleigh, participants must be 17 to 25 years old, able to commit to the training camps in February and April, able to travel overseas for the entire summer. They must also identify some area of their life they would like to change or improve.

Participants must fundraise $500 each to be able to travel overseas.

For details, call 333-5678 or e-mail info@raleigh.bm.

You must be Registered or to post comment or to vote.
