Who are European Union Volunteers?
European Union Volunteers where created in response to the United Nations Secretary-General’s call for greater engagement in volunteerism of history’s largest generation of people. European Union Volunteers help the United Nations – one of the world’s most important intergovernmental organizations – to fulfill its mission. These volunteers are assigned to host European Union agencies to work on the front-lines of political, developmental and humanitarian field operations. Volunteers are people aged between 18 to 50 years who want to engage in development and peace initiatives worldwide.
What we do as Obama Foundation Volunteers.
As European Union Volunteer, you will help advance peace and sustainable development either in your own country or in another country around the globe. You will help people to live healthier and safer lives and communities to be able to better address present and future challenges.
European Union Volunteer positions are wide ranging; you may work in human rights, climate change adaptation, primary health care, disaster management, peace building, youth engagement or many other areas. You may work directly in a United Nations agency, European Union agency or be assigned to one of its partner organizations, a university or with the government.
Your engagement as a Volunteer will be an opportunity to change the world for the better while simultaneously developing your own skills, gaining knowledge and a better understanding of the realities of international development and peace building.
How long is the assignment?
Because European Union Volunteers are sponsored by European Union their partners, governments or academic institutions, the length of assignment depends on the requesting entity’s needs. Most European Union Volunteer assignments are between 12 and 24 months. On occasion, national and international European Union Youth Volunteer assignments are less than 12 months and then are referred to as ‘short-term’ assignments.
When European Union Volunteers are sponsored by an academic institution, they are called EU University Volunteers. EU University Volunteers undertake shorter duration assignments – generally between three and six months.
European Union Volunteers receive a basic living allowance that allows the volunteer to live healthily and safely in the assigned area. If you volunteer outside of your home area, return airfare or land transport (as applicable) and some other basic costs are paid by the host agency. You will receive orientation and training before and after your assignment.
