Youth Volunteers

youthvolunteer

Volunteerism has an important role to play in harnessing the potential of young people, while fostering their inclusion in global peace and sustainable human development processes.   For young people, engaging in voluntary work can be an opportunity to change the world for the better while learning new skills, gaining knowledge, learning about new cultures and better understanding the realities of international development and peace building.

As a bridging organization between the UN, NGOs and governments, UNV is ideally suited to help partners leverage the power of youth through volunteerism. Under its new UN Youth Volunteer modality UNV has created new opportunities for 18-29 year-olds to be integrated into the work of UN entities around the world.

UN Youth Volunteers bring creativity, passion, and energy to the projects and programmes of UN agencies, working in such fields as basic social services, primary healthcare, disaster risk reduction, peacebuilding, and youth empowerment, among others.  Volunteer assignments are challenging but rewarding, and a specific programme for training and mentoring of UN Youth Volunteers provides opportunities to develop personal and professional skills.
