International Volunteer Day (IVD) is a global celebration of volunteers. It takes place every year on December 5 to shine a light on the impact of volunteer efforts everywhere.

Volunteers are leading social change around the world. This special day promotes the work of volunteers at all levels, including local, national and international. United Nations Volunteers founded International Volunteer Day in 1985. It offers an opportunity for volunteer-involving organizations and individual volunteers to promote volunteerism, encourage governments to support volunteer efforts and recognize volunteer contributions to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at local, national and international levels.

The UN Volunteers (UNV) program organizes events to mark the Day annually. UNV mobilizes thousands of volunteers every year, advocates for the recognition of volunteers, and works with partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming.
