Mission and objectives

The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme contributes to peace and development through volunteerism worldwide. We work with partners to integrate qualified, highly motivated and well supported UN Volunteers into development programming and promote the value and global recognition of volunteerism. UNV’s Online Volunteering service was launched in the year 2000 and allows organizations and volunteers to team up to address sustainable development challenges – anywhere in the world, from any device. Online volunteering is simple, universal – and most of all, effective. Since then it has enabled thousands of organizations worldwide to receive volunteer support over the Internet, and hundreds of thousands of Online Volunteers to utilize their skills, expertise and experience to support their efforts. UNV’s Online Volunteering offers: – A global platform for organizations and Online Volunteers to connect – An easy-search database of Online Volunteer assignments – Access to online volunteering experiences, best practices and lessons learned – Tools to manage volunteers’ and organizations’ online collaboration – The possibility for volunteers and organizations to expand their networks – The advantage of the universal reach and impartiality of the United Nations


For more than 20 years, UNV has supported UN partners, governments, and civil society organizations (CSOs) through its Online Volunteering (OV) service. The service is provided free of charge to all eligible organizations and allows them to connect with volunteers from around the world to team up and tackle sustainable human development challenges. One of the areas of support online volunteers can provide to UN agencies is in the scope of elections where/if respective UN entity is involved. As there will be 60+ elections taking place in 2024, we would like to engage an Online Volunteer to list and map the elections in Europe and Central Asia and the existence/absence and level of involvement of UN agencies, in order to develop an Online Volunteering offer. The goal of the task is to provide support to the UN’s efforts toward its member states in supporting and conducting fair, objective, impartial, neutral and independent elections.
