Supporting UNICEF From Within the United States

Our volunteers are dedicated supporters of all ages and backgrounds living in the U.S. who educate, advocate and fundraise on behalf of UNICEF in their communities.

Our vast network of volunteers have increased awareness on issues of child survival, advocated for children's rights, and raised or leveraged funds for UNICEF for over 60 years.

As a volunteer, you can: 

Educate yourself and others to learn about UNICEF’s work in over 190 countries and territories and how you can take action right here in the United States.  Get started by attending one of our online volunteer trainings. Whether you are a teacher, parent or a volunteer passionate about education, TeachUNICEF provides free resources that can be shared with any child in your community on world issues. 


Influence public policy and legislative action for the survival, protection and development of the world's children. Learn more on different opportunities to lead local advocacy efforts and rally constituents and policymakers to take action, including how to start or join a Congressional Acton Team.  


Organize a fundraiser or event in your community to support UNICEF’s work in putting children first.  See what public events may be going on right now in your area by viewing our Fundraiser/Event map.
