It’s easy to get involved and support UNHCR with emergency fundraising and ongoing support of refugee families. The best way to help is to leverage your network of friends, family, neighbours or co-workers to raise awareness and funds.

Volunteer to Help Refugees in Need

Volunteers provide critical support to help UNHCR deliver on its mandate. They work in a variety of roles ranging from protection, refugee status determination, programme delivery, communication, information technology to administrative functions and more.

Every year, around 900 UN Volunteers support UNHCR in some 70 countries. Volunteering at UNHCR is a great chance to contribute to your local or host community and to gain work experience in the humanitarian sector.

Contracts are usually for 6-12 months, with a maximum period of four years. If you are interested in volunteering internationally, please visit UNHCR International for more information.
