Mission Statement

ICVolunteers (ICV) is an international non-governmental organization that recruits, trains and coordinates volunteers for non-profit projects, events and conferences (conference support, cybervolunteerism and language services).


ICVolunteers provides motivated individuals with unique short- and long-term opportunities to volunteer in local, national and international settings. By helping others, volunteers offer their knowledge and experience to provide critical assistance to important humanitarian and other non-profit projects. At the same time, they also acquire new skills and grow both personally and professionally.

When volunteers register with ICVolunteers, we send them regular updates on upcoming projects. Once an individual decides to sign up for one, we will then send specific information related to the project. Project types include:

Conference Services. Work with other ICV volunteers to help plan, host, interpret and report on events for some of Geneva's most interesting and important local, national and international conferences. Specific tasks include welcoming and assisting delegates, translation and interpretation of events, writing and editing reports on conference proceedings, and providing multimedia support. Past conferences range from annual meetings of the UN Commission of Human Rights to gatherings focused on the cutting-edge issues in information technology, sustainable development, and other current affairs.

Communications and journalism. Write and edit articles, interviews and other contributions for ICV publications, website and other online forums.

Volunteer abroad. In addition to our activities in the Geneva area, ICV works throughout Europe, and in Canada, Africa and South America. Volunteers can participate in local, regional and international projects for a period of several weeks or months in communications and journalism, information and communications technology, or conference services.

Other professional services. Individuals can apply their professional talents, including accounting, bookkeeping, computer maintenance, transportation services, and other important skills, to help our organization manage and build its programs.

Internships and 'long-term' volunteering with ICVolunteers. At our headquarters in Geneva (Switzerland), we offer internships (unpaid) and long-term volunteer opportunities, be it in translation (from and to English, French and Spanish), event organization, writing and editing, Internet research, IT-related work (web, system and software development), resource mobilization and other areas.
