The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is the UN organization that contributes to peace and development by mobilizing volunteers who serve on-site or online, advocating for volunteerism globally and encouraging partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming. Sign-up on UNV Online Volunteering service to support Global Pulse or other UN Entities and NGOs over the internet. You can follow UNV on Twitter at @UNVolunteers or create an alert to receive a notification when an online volunteering opportunity matching your interest is available. Data scientists, data privacy professionals and data engineers are highly encouraged to do so as demand for such expertise is rapidly growing. Should you wish to volunteer on-site, you can also register your profile in UNV’s roster that is used to fill UN agencies volunteer requests.
