United Nations Volunteers programme (UNV)


The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme contributes to peace and development through volunteerism worldwide. We work with partners to integrate qualified, highly motivated and well supported UN Volunteers into development programming and promote the value and global recognition of volunteerism.

Every year, UNV deploys over 6,500 UN Volunteers in support of the development and peace interventions of United Nations entities and other partners. Some 83 per cent of UN Volunteers come from the global South, 45 per cent are women and 29 per cent are under the age of 29. Additionally, over 12,500 UN Online Volunteers complete more than 22,500 assignments over the Internet.

UN Volunteers take action in their as signments within the nexus of the three interdependent pillars of the United Nations: peace, development and humanitarian assistance. Volunteerism empowers people to collectively act and engage across all the Sustainable Development Goals, providing an opportunity for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to be truly owned by the people. UNV is active in around 130 countries every year. With field presences in over 60 countries, UNV is represented worldwide. UNV is administered by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
