The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme

We are excited to announce the upcoming launch of our new website!

The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is very pleased to announce the upcoming launch of the new Online Volunteering service website, which will go live at www.onlinevolunteering.org on 7 July 2016.

Our goal with the new website is to provide our volunteers and organizations – our online volunteering community – with an even faster, more inclusive and more appealing way to connect with each other and to join forces for peace and development worldwide.

The features you know will be redesigned to give them a fresher, cleaner, contemporary look. The website will be more visual and have a responsive design as well as enhanced social media integration for closer communication. The newsletter will be replaced by the online volunteering blog that you can personalize, and the annual Online Volunteering Award campaign will be linked directly to the website.

Together with the redesigned website, UNV will launch three additional services. The 1-click query will allow organizations to reach out to half a million people to provide real-time data for their projects. UNV will make extensions of the new website available to partners like national volunteer platforms and large volunteer-involving organizations, to adapt to their own needs and brand. And UNV will officially launch its employee online volunteering solution for global companies, for which many new partners have already expressed interest.

Important: The launch on 7 July will require several hours of downtime to allow the transition between the old and the new face of onlinevolunteering.org. The website will not be available from 9 am Central European Time until the end of the day. We recommend that you take this into consideration when planning your online volunteering activities on and around that date.

We hope that you will like the new website! And we welcome any questions, suggestions, feedback or comments you may have. Please send them to info@onlinevolunteering.org.

Best wishes,
The Online Volunteering service team
