UNICEF does not recruit volunteers directly. Volunteer opportunities are offered through the U.S. Fund for UNICEF in the case of US-based volunteer work. Similarly, UNICEF National Committees in other industrialized countries can provide information on volunteer activities for their respective citizens.
For US-based volunteer opportunities: please contact the U.S. Fund for UNICEF for information on volunteer opportunities throughout the United States. The mailing address is: United States Fund for UNICEF, 125 Maiden Lane, New York, N.Y. 10038.
