The United Nations Volunteers

Every day, millions of individuals across the planet engage in development initiatives through volunteer actions – both large and small – in order to improve conditions for others and for themselves, their families and communities. Individual and collective action has a major impact on peace and development. Volunteer action was pivotal to achieving the Millennium Development Goals and will be even more decisive for the Impact 2030 agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme has evolved greatly over the past 42 years in terms of the size and spread of its mandate, results and activities, driven by the changing external environment for peace, development and the eradication of poverty, by the wider acknowledgment of the role of volunteerism globally and by intergovernmental legislation. In 2006, the UNDP/UNFPA/UNOPS Executive Board confirmed UNV’s business model, leading to UNV being operational in three domains:

  • mobilizing volunteers to enable more people to be directly involved in humanitarian, peace building and post conflict recovery, as well as sustainable development and poverty eradication work of the UN;
  • advocating for volunteerism and civic engagement in peace and development; and
  • pursuing the integration of volunteerism across policy, legislation and programming as well as delivering on internationally agreed development goals.

Making the Most of Your Summer

Summer break is finally here! Some of you may be taking classes, others, starting their internships or taking some much needed R&R time. Regardless of your plans for the next few months, remember that this is a prime time to reflect on your career goals and prepare for the next year.

Below are some ways you can make the most of the summer:

  • Update your marketing materials (resume, LinkedIn): Include your latest accomplishments and establish a LinkedIn profile if you don’t already have one. (Haven’t started a LinkedIn page? Take a look at this checklist for quick tips.)
  • Cultivate your professional network: Schedule coffee chats and informational interviews with professionals you’d like to meet or learn from using resources such as the Online Alumni Community and LinkedIn Group. You can also attend various networking events in your area based on your interests.
  • Create a career action plan: Start honing in on your post-grad plans including your target job, so you know what knowledge, skills, and connections you should be building through the next year. (Looking for opportunities to develop your skill set? Volunteer or take free skill-building courses.)
