The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is the UN organization that promotes volunteerism to support peace and development worldwide. Volunteerism can transform the pace and nature of development and it benefits both society at large and the individual volunteer. UNV contributes to peace and development by advocating for volunteerism globally, encouraging partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming, and mobilizing volunteers.
The Online Volunteering service is one of the UNV programme’s tools to mobilize volunteers for peace and development.
The 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.
