UN Women and UN Volunteers (UNV) have launched a new Young Women Leaders Initiative to create professional opportunities for young leaders.

As part of the Young Women Leaders initiative, UN Women and UNV will recruit the first cohort of 10 young, talented and dedicated women to serve at United Nations Women’s headquarters as UN Youth Volunteers.

While participating in a structured professional development programme, the YWL participants will be mentored by leaders in their respective fields of expertise. If you are under the age of 29 and passionate about volunteering for gender equality and women’s empowerment, you can read more about the opportunity to work with UN Women and apply on the UN Volunteers website.
