5. How do I become a volunteer for UNICEF?

If you have an undergraduate degree, several years of work experience and are interested in long-term volunteer opportunities in developing countries, you may be eligible for entry into the United Nations Volunteer (UNV) programme. This is a United Nations common programme, which recruits volunteers for assignments throughout the United Nations system, including UNICEF. Application procedures and information are available at the UNV Web site.

UNICEF does not recruit volunteers directly. Volunteer opportunities are offered through UNICEF National Committees in industrialized countries. They can provide information on volunteer activities for their respective citizens.

If you are a national of an industrialized country, you may contact the UNICEF National Committee in your home country for further information.

UNICEF does not provide scholarships, fellowships or grants.

6. Does UNICEF undertake any activities in Israel?

UNICEF is the world’s leading child survival/ or children’s organization, operating in more than 150 countries and territories around the world, including in Israel.  UNICEF is guided by the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child and is steadfastly committed to the principle that child rights apply to all children, everywhere.

As one of UNICEF’s first beneficiaries, Israel received child survival and development support from UNICEF for 18 years.  By 1966, the government of Israel achieved the goal of many developing nations - attaining economic wherewithal to care for its children - and notified UNICEF that it no longer required assistance. 

In Israel, UNICEF is represented by the Israeli Fund for UNICEF, which is chartered to advocate for the protection of children, raise awareness about children’s rights, and raise funds for our work around the world. The Israeli Fund for UNICEFis an energetic advocate for all children.

Our mission – to stand up for the best interests of all children, everywhere – transcends all boundaries, real and imagined, and blesses UNICEF with an intrinsic sense of optimism.  It is precisely this optimism that makes UNICEF so effective.   

Our record of caring, passion, and concrete results for children everywhere, including in Israel, speaks volumes about our values.
