The key benefit of being a UN Volunteer is the personal satisfaction the volunteer assignment brings you as you make a positive impact on peace and development. However, UNV supports you during your assignment in several ways, e.g. through a monthly volunteer living allowance, annual leave, and medical insurance. For more details, please refer the Conditions of Service for international UN Volunteers.
The vast majority of assignments are based on six to twelve month renewable contracts with the expectation that the UN Volunteer will serve a year or more. Maximum length of service is four years. Please refer to the Conditions of Service for international UN Volunteers for more details.
