International Volunteer Day

ABOUT

The International Volunteer Day (IVD) mandated by the UN General Assembly in 1985, is held each year on the 5th of December. IVD is a unique chance for volunteers and volunteer-involving organizations to celebrate their efforts, to share their values, and to promote their work among communities, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), United Nations agencies, government authorities and the private sector.

In addition to advocating for, integrating and mobilizing thousands of volunteers worldwide, the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme contributes to peace and development by recognizing volunteers and working with partners to integrate volunteerism into the development agenda.
