Can I volunteer outside my own country?

Yes, you can apply to become an international UN Volunteer. UNV maintains a database which is a dynamic pool of talent fed by over 50,000 registrations annually and is tailored to meet the needs of our partners. The majority of assignments are filled by candidates from UNV’s database. However, from time to time, difficult and highly specialized or high-volume assignments are advertised on the UNV website, in specialized media, professional associations and on social media/networks. For further details on how to serve as an international UN Volunteer and how to create your UNV profile, please visit this link. Another option is to volunteer over the Internet from home through the UNV Online Volunteering service.
