Volunteer for UNICEF USA

UNICEF USA Volunteers support UNICEF’s mission of putting children first. Our Volunteers are of all ages and backgrounds living in the United States who educate, advocate and fundraise on behalf of UNICEF in their communities.

Our vast network of Volunteers has increased awareness on issues of child survival, advocated for children’s rights, and raised funds for UNICEF for over 70 years. 

Volunteers have hosted awareness raising events, such as panel discussions, speaking on the issues of trafficking, global citizenship, and emergencies around the world. Volunteers have held bake sales, dinner parties, Water Walks, and hosted sporting events and online fundraisers, raising crucial funds for UNICEF’s lifesaving work to put children first.

Action of the Month

Stop the traumatic practice of separating children from their parents at our borders   

We are joining other organizations that care about children to call on Congress to hold the U.S. Government accountable and stop the traumatic practice of separating children from their parents at our borders. The  Keep Families Together Act  (S.3036) was developed in consultation with child welfare experts to ensure the federal government is acting in the best interest of children. This legislation protects the welfare of children by ensuring children be separated from their parents only in the event they are being trafficked or abused by their parents. 

Please click here to contact your Senators in support of this bill to keep families together.
