Promoting Professional Volunteer Resource Management

international vol dayInternational Volunteer Day is celebrated every year on December 5th.

 The International Volunteer Day for Economic and Social Development (IVD) was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly through Resolution A/RES/40/212 on 17 December 1985. Since then, governments, the UN system and civil society organizations have successfully joined volunteers around the world to celebrate the Day on 5 December.

IVD offers an opportunity for volunteer organizations and individual volunteers to make visible their contributions - at local, national and international levels - to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals.Over the years, rallies, parades, community volunteering projects,environmental awareness, free medical care and advocacy campaigns have all featured prominently on IVD.

These events are led by IVD national committees comprising partners from the UN system, governments, civil society organizations (including national and/or international volunteer involving organizations) and committed individuals. 

Some IVD committees also include representatives from the media, academia, foundations, the private sector, faith groups, and sports and recreational organizations.
