United Nations Volunteers: How to volunteer

United Nations Volunteers: How to volunteer
UNV is inspired by the conviction that volunteerism is a powerful means of engaging people in tackling development challenges worldwide. Everyone can contribute their time, skills and knowledge through volunteer action, and their combined efforts can be a significant force for achieving peace and development. Volunteering makes important economic and social contributions, contributing to a more cohesive society by building trust and reciprocity among citizens. It can be both challenging and rewarding and require you to use your skills in a new context. Read more about volunteerism for peace and development. At the request of UN agencies, national governments and other partners, UNV mobilizes close to 8,000 volunteers to work in Development Assistance projects and in Humanitarian and Peacekeeping Operations. Read more about what it means to be a UN Volunteer. Are you interested and/or available to volunteer your time and skills on a short-term assignment of three months or less? Related:  juliearmidale

Careers United Nations Volunteers UN Volunteers directly mobilizes up to 8,000 volunteers every year. Eight out of ten UN Volunteers come from developing countries themselves. If you are inspired to take concrete action for global peace and development, take a look at the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme. Every year, up to 8,000 qualified and experienced women and men of some 160 different nationalities volunteer at least six months of their lives to help others. UN Volunteers come from dozens of professional backgrounds but all of them are catalysts of positive change. Being a UN Volunteer is not a career (you are currently limited to eight years of service); it is also not an entry route to the United Nations (you can apply to UN positions as an external candidate, but are expected to complete your UNV assignment). As a UN Volunteer you receive a Volunteer Living Allowance (VLA) which covers basic needs, housing and utilities. Are you ready to be a volunteer?

50 Menschen, die WIRKLICH dabei helfen, die Flüchtlingskrise zu lösen - und die zeigen, was JEDER VON UNS tun kann Auch in den vergangenen Tagen haben sich wieder Tausende Flüchtlinge auf den Weg nach Europa gemacht. So wie schon in den Wochen und Monaten zuvor. Wenn sie an den Grenzen der EU ankommen, haben diese Menschen meist eine lebensgefährliche Reise über das Mittelmeer oder in Schlepper-Lkw hinter sich - und zurzeit haben diese Menschen vor allem ein Ziel: Deutschland. Das stellt unser Land vor eine gewaltige Aufgabe. Mit 800.000 Flüchtlingen rechnet die Regierung in Berlin in diesem Jahr. Das Großartige ist: Bisher sind wir dieser Ausnahmesituation gewachsen. Ja, es gibt Ausnahmen, aber die allermeisten Deutschen heißen die Flüchtlinge willkommen. Und die vergangenen Tage und Wochen haben gezeigt, dass das keine leere Phrase ist. Ersteinmal: Die Regierung in Berlin macht derzeit vieles richtig, sie sendet ein wichtiges Signal. Für diese Haltung wird Kanzlerin Angela Merkel im Ausland derzeit gefeiert. Die Huffington Post will den Menschen, die helfen, ein Gesicht geben. Sarah Wiener, Köchin
