WFUNA recruits volunteers who are interested in committing their time to helping us achieve our goals. We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities on a continuous basis, and occasionally seek volunteers for specific projects.

Volunteering with WFUNA gives you the opportunity to meet and network with others who share your interest and passion for the United Nations and global issues.

We are grateful to our volunteers who gift us with their valuable time and are happy to provide them with letters of reference when appropriate.

Volunteer at Our Kiosk at UN Headquarters

WFUNA has a kiosk space in the Visitors Center of the United Nations Headquarters building in New York. The kiosk serves two main functions: to disseminate information about WFUNA and our member UNAs to the multitude of visitors from all around world, and to sell our merchandise. The profits from our sales contribute directly to WFUNA's programming.

The Kiosk is open 7 days a week and relies solely on the generously donated time of volunteers. To volunteer, please email Joe Haddad at haddad@wfuna.org. List to Joe explain why he chooses to volunteer for WFUNA in the video below:
