UN Volunteers : Inspiration in Action

United Nations Volunteers

The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is the UN organization that contributes to peace and development through volunteerism worldwide.  Volunteerism is a powerful means of engaging people in tackling development challenges, and it can transform the pace and nature of development.  Volunteerism benefits both society at large and the individual volunteer by strengthening trust, solidarity and reciprocity among citizens, and by purposefully creating opportunities for participation.  UNV contributes to peace and development by advocating for recognition of volunteers, working with partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming, and mobilizing an increasing number and diversity of volunteers, including experienced UNV volunteers, throughout the world.  UNV embraces volunteerism as universal and inclusive, and recognizes volunteerism in its diversity as well as the values that sustain it: free will, commitment, engagement and solidarity.

The UNV Online Volunteering service

The UNV Online Volunteering service connects volunteers with organizations working for sustainable human development.  Volunteers contribute their skills online to help organizations address development challenges.  Organizations collaborate with online volunteers over the Internet to strengthen the impact of their development work. Now in English, French and Spanish.

World Volunteer Web

The World Volunteer Web supports the volunteer community by serving as a global clearinghouse for information and resources linked to volunteerism that can be used for campaigning, advocacy and networking.  It is an online hub where the community can meet, share resources and coordinate activities to mobilize volunteer action in support of the Millennium Development Goals.  With a constituency comprising of over 20,000 organizations and individuals, the World Volunteer Web helps to catalyze partnerships among volunteer stakeholders from all continents.  The website is also the global focal point for International Volunteer Day (IVD), celebrated around the world every 5 December.
