Rallying Together: Summary of a research study of Raleigh's work with disadvantaged young people

  1. To provide Raleigh with feedback on its work with disadvantaged young people over the past 25 years
  2. To provide a case study of a practical intervention which has broader lessons for policymakers and practitioners concerned with improving young people's lives.

    Raleigh is a youth development organisation that runs overseas expeditions for young people to work together on community, environmental and conservation projects around the world.

    In 2008, ippr was commissioned by Raleigh to research the long-term impact of Raleigh's work with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. This research had two key objectives:

    1. To provide Raleigh with feedback on its work with disadvantaged young people over the past 25 years
    2. To provide a case study of a practical intervention which has broader lessons for policymakers and practitioners concerned with improving young people's lives.
