inspiration in action
 
In recent years, there has been an increasing focus within the developmentcommunity on youth issues and a growing emphasis on youthparticipation in particular. This is in response to demographic shifts(a rapidly growing global youth population) and in recognition of both the potential (enthusiasm, creativity and energy) and thechallenges (social exclusion, underemployment, poverty) thatthis large cohort faces.Volunteerism has an important role to play in harnessingthe potential of young people. It is an important means of supporting young people in their diversity, whilst fostering their inclusion in global peace and sustainable human developmentprocesses.Of course, engaging young people through volunteerism has to be
a two-way street: young people should benet from their volunteering
experience as much their host community. That is why, as you will read, thisstrategy emphasizes skills development, knowledge, and personal growth in our UN YouthVolunteers modality, while also compelling us to not only increase the quantity of volunteeringopportunities available to young people globally, but also improve the quality of their volunteer experience.With this strategy, UNV is setting our course of action with regards to youth volunteerism for the coming years. It represents more than a year’s worth of effort by dozens of individuals,who convened workshops and online consultations, chaired focus groups and meetings, heldhundreds of phone conversations, and revised numerous drafts to produce this version.
More than fty organizations and individuals shared their time and expertise with UNV in the
course of developing this document, including UN agencies, youth networks, NGOs, volunteer involving organizations, governments, and academic experts. Without a doubt, this documenthas been much enriched by their contributions and, on behalf of UNV, I would like to thank all of them for their valuable support.Sincerely,Richard DictusExecutive Coordinator, UNV
