United Nations Online Volunteering Opportunities has been initiated with the aim of making a difference in the world by bringing organizations and volunteers working together for peace and development.

The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme contributes to peace and development through volunteerism worldwide. Online volunteering allows organizations and volunteers to team up to address sustainable development challenges – anywhere in the world, from any device. Online volunteering is fast, easy – and most of all, effective. When skilled, passionate individuals join forces online with great organizations working toward sustainable development goals, everyone wins.

Effective 1 January 2020, the Online Volunteering service is free of charge to all eligible partners. Eligible partners are: UN entities, Governmental or other public institutions, and Civil Society Organizations.

For Partnership 

As of 1 January 2020, the Online Volunteering service is free of charge to all eligible partners. This is made possible through the process efficiency measure put in place in 2019. Partners eligible for the Online Volunteering service are:

  1. UN entities
  2. Governmental or other public institutions
  3. Civil Society Organizations (CSOs).

Interested partners should register here. Applications will be reviewed and approved by UNV based on the information provided in the registration process.

To this end, CSOs who wish to publish opportunities on UNV Online Volunteering should note that they must either:

  1. Already be registered with UNV’s Online Volunteers service; or
  2. Provide evidence of accreditation with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC); or
  3. Be working with UN Country Teams as an implementing partner or through an agreement and provide evidence that a UN Entity has undertaken due diligence.

Evidence to this end must be provided when registering on our platform by uploading the respective document – either your accreditation certificate with ECOSOC, or this form signed by the UN Entity which has undertaken the due diligence.

CSOs that have tried to register with us and were rejected while registration was suspended in 2019 are welcome to register again, if they comply with the above-mentioned criteria. CSOs already registered on our platform are welcome to continue using the platform as before.
