We are supported by volunteers who work to inform and engage the community on the goals and values of the United Nations and in particular, the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
How to get involved with the UNAA (NSW) Division?
Volunteering with the UNAA (NSW) is a great way to show your support for the important work of the UN and an opportunity to polish your skills and use it to make local contributions with global impact. As our volunteer, you can provide support for our activities through research and promotion or help in organising an awareness-raising or fundraising event in your school, workplace or community.
Volunteering involves a combination of:
General Volunteering – Plenty of opportunities to get involved, right from assisting in the planning, organisation or participation in our community-focused events.
Skilled Volunteering – Utilising your creative, technical skills (in accounting, graphic design, legal, photography, communications, research, event management, logistics, administration, data entry and general office duties etc.) and applying it to support the work of the UNAA.
What you’ll need?
- Aligned with the UN core values
- A drive to support the UNAA NSW Branch
- Able to commit. We ask that all volunteers make a good faith commitment to the time, terms and conditions of the volunteer role.
- Age requirements. We note that some of the UNAA volunteer activities have minimum age requirements. Event fundraising is open to all age groups.
- Living in NSW, Australia
We are always looking for general and skilled volunteers for a variety of roles and events. We also partner with Corporates for UNAA team building volunteering events.

Monthly Virtual Meet-Up
The NSW UNAA hosts a monthly Members and Volunteers Meet-Up. This group connects our Members and Volunteers in an informal setting so that you can learn about the work of the United Nations and the role of the United Nations Association Australia (NSW). This is also an opportunity to connect with like minded people and see how you can make a personal impact.
Any Members and Volunteers should join however this is open to anybody who wants to learn more about the UN.
Each month we will be covering some of the hot topics concerning the UN and the work the UNAA is doing in NSW with guest speakers and panel discussions throughout the year. There will be plenty of time for networking where you can meet and ask questions of the UNAA committee and other speakers.
