UNV partnering with the International Association for Volunteer Effort

The International Association for Volunteer Effort (IAVE) serves as a global voice for volunteering, working closely with the United Nations, international NGOs and global companies to call attention to the strategic importance of volunteering as a way to solve problems and improve the quality of life for all. IAVE hosts the biennial World Volunteer Conference and World Youth Volunteer Conference and biennial regional conferences as opportunities for leaders from across the field to come together.

IAVE is a recognized knowledge leader for the global volunteer community, conducting research and providing in-depth reports on current trends and challenges. IAVE brings together key constituencies to share with and learn from one another – the Global Corporate Volunteer Council, the Global Network of National Volunteer Centers and the Global Youth Volunteers Network. Currently, working closely with United Nations Volunteers, IAVE has mobilized its networks to advocate for recognition of volunteering as a strategic asset to be mobilized to help achieve the UN’s Post 2015 Development Agenda and the forthcoming Sustainable Development Goals.
