Welcome to the UN Partners Toolkit for hosting UN Volunteers
UN Volunteers bring motivation, commitment and a diversity of perspectives, experiences and cultures that enrich the UN system. Whether you are considering or already working with UNV and UN Volunteers, you have probably considered the added value of UN Volunteers and volunteerism to help you deliver your peace, development and humanitarian results.
As managers and supervisors, you play a critical role in enabling their engagement, learning and performance in delivering results at work. Your UN Volunteers look to you for inspiration and support.
Everything you need to hire and supervise a UN Volunteer is broken down for you in our new five-part online guide. Given your leadership experience, there’s much you’ll know already.
These pages are designed to guide you through the UN Volunteer journey - the various stages you and the volunteer will experience together during the assignment. As a just-in-time resource, you may use it anytime, anywhere – in the way that works for you. Skim bullet point checklists at your own pace to understand your supervisor role and your UN Volunteer’s unique needs.
Refer to this comprehensive – but not overwhelming – toolkit for continued support in all situations. Making use of these resources will assist you in creating compelling experiences for your UN Volunteers. Invest in your team – they will help you get the results you want! This guide replaces the former hosting a volunteer page of our website.
Changes to the UN Volunteer Conditions of Service and update on the Unified Volunteering Platform
On 1 October 2021, UNV will launch revised Conditions of Service for UN Volunteers and a Unified Volunteering Platform.
The revised Conditions of Service for UN Volunteers aim to achieve two objectives, namely to (1) streamline the administration of UN Volunteers, with minimal changes to the proforma and entitlement packages, and (2) strengthen equity across UN Volunteer entitlements.
The Unified Volunteering Platform will be a single-entry point for candidates, serving UN Volunteers, as well as United Nations and funding partners.
