The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is the UN organization that contributes to peace and development through volunteerism worldwide. Volunteerism is a powerful means of engaging people in tackling development challenges, and it can transform the pace and nature of development. Volunteerism benefits both society at large and the individual volunteer by strengthening trust, solidarity and reciprocity among citizens, and by purposefully creating opportunities for participation. UNV contributes to peace and development by advocating for recognition of volunteers, working with partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming, and mobilizing an increasing number and diversity of volunteers, including experienced UN volunteers, throughout the world. UNV embraces volunteerism as universal and inclusive, and recognizes volunteerism in its diversity as well as the values that sustain it: free will, commitment, engagement and solidarity.

The Executive Office (ExO) provides vision, innovation, and organizational leadership, and strategically directs and manages UNV. The ExO defines UNV’s long-term goals and immediate objectives, taking into account UN General Assembly resolutions and UNDP/UNFPA/UNOPS Executive Board decisions. The ExO leads the organization’s development, articulation and implementation of the substantive, financial and operational aspects of the UNV programme, e.g. strategies, policies and guidelines.
