Raleigh KL organizes Introduction Weekend Dec 2009
3 days 2 nights camping event to prepare enthusiastic youths for local and international expeditions

When shopping, movies and clubbing sound too ordinary to you, why not try on something more challenging and enticing?

Youth development NGO, Raleigh International Kuala Lumpur will be organizing an Introduction Weekend (IW) from 18 to 20 December 2009. All Malaysian youths aged 17 to 24 are welcomed to join us at the 3 days 2 nights camping event.

Introduction Weekend serves as a prerequisite and training ground for potential Raleigh International Expedition Venturers. During the Introduction Weekend, participants will be exposed to different skills and activities that are similar to experiencing an expedition.

What is an expedition?
Being a UK-based charity, Raleigh International inspires youths from all backgrounds and nationalities to discover their potential by working together on adventure, community and environmental projects. The 10 week long expedition is an eye opener for youths to meet people with different backgrounds and work in challenging conditions.

Since 1984, over 300 Malaysian youths have been taking part in Raleigh International Expeditions, be it local or international. Even HRH Prince William went to a Chile Expedition in 2000 as part of his gap year.

Expedition countries this year include Costa Rica / Nicaragua, India, and Sabah. The next expedition will take place in February 2010.

Who is eligible to join IW?
If you are between the age of 17 to 24 and is able to converse in English, do not miss the opportunity to meet up with other youths who share the common interests as you. Participants are preferably able to swim 200 meters unaided. A minimal fee of RM 50 will be charged, which covers insurance, transportation, food and accommodation expenses over the weekend.
Adventurous and outgoing youths who are interested to join IW may send your enquiry to iwdec09@<hidden> and you will be attended shortly. Application forms can be requested through email or downloaded directly from our blog http://www.raleighinternational.org.my (http://www.raleighinternational.org.my/) , closing date for this IW is 30th November 2009.
