UNV program: great opportunity to join the United Nations

There is a great opportunity for people around the world, to become Volunteer or International Volunteer of the United Nations Program (better known as IUNV - International United Nation Volunteer Program). This voluntary service can be realised in the country of origin (in this case the name is UNV program) or abroad (IUNV program) and, despite the word Volunteer, participants can always count on an economic remuneration and other additional benefits.


UNV is based in Bonn, Germany. UNV has a staff of around 150 at headquarters, and almost 7,000 volunteers deployed in the field. Four Regional Offices in Bangkok, Dakar, Nairobi and Panama City develop regional interventions to advance peace and development, and around 80 Field Units represent the organization at the country level. Olivier Adam (France) is the Executive Coordinator.



International UN Volunteers promote peace and development in communities around the globe, while upholding the ideals and aspirations of the United Nations. International UN Volunteers come from 160 countries, representing many cultures and backgrounds. They bring a wide variety of perspectives and approaches. Your international UN Volunteer assignment will make a lasting impact. It can create a ripple effect that extends far beyond the immediate results of your efforts. As an international UN Volunteer, you will learn about different cultures, expand your networks, and study foreign languages and gain matchless professional and life experiences. International UN Volunteers support local volunteer initiatives, strengthen community capacities, foster ownership and sustainability of development activities and contribute toward the achievement of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).



To become national volunteers you need to consult the United Nations Development Program page (UNDP), because UNDP is in charge of administering and managing applications for admission within each country.


In the case of international voluntary, the agency of Volunteers of the United Nations administers vacancies directly and offers that you can see on http://www.unv.org (On this web site you will find some specific voluntary offers).


Another possibility, for those wishing to contribute to the work of the United Nations directly from his home, is the online volunteer program. The Online Volunteering enables organizations and volunteers to work together to address the challenges of sustainable development - anywhere in the world and from any device. Online volunteering is fast, easy and, above all, effective.

  - Possess a university degree
  - At least two years of relevant professional experience
