The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is awarded to young people from UN member States interested in contributing to peace and development through volunteerism worldwide. UNV provides the opportunity for a limited number of internships at its headquarters in Bonn, Germany.
The UNV Internship Programme offers the opportunity to acquire direct exposure to UNV’s work and is designed to complement development-oriented studies with practical experience in development and volunteerism. It may also complement other studies such as international relations, communications, media relations and social sciences.
The objective is to enhance the intern’s educational experience through practical work assignments and to allow selected candidates to gain insight into the work of the United Nations.
