It is the time in history to be fighting for human rights on a global scale, and we are proof of this - as a 98% volunteer-powered organization. Everyone is fighting for a cause that they believe in.



NVI-NY welcomes volunteers who want to bring their expertise and experience to an international

platform. NVI’s Special Consultative Status with the UN Economic and Social Council provides 

additional access at United Nations conferences and other international settings for meaningful

dialogue. The program also allows volunteers to collaborate with a number of other

international NGOs amongst civil society and other stakeholders, and with member-states.

We welcome volunteers from all professional fields. We welcome new ideas and skill sets for each semester. We have created a program that allows you to learn and utilize your skills while impacting the international community. Our volunteer program is a place to apply your talents while helping the world.

NVI-NY has previously hosted hard-working and dedicated volunteers with experience in a wide variety of disciplines including lawyers, medical professionals as well

as those from the communications, fundraising, and other creative fields.
