How do I go about volunteering to work for UNICEF?
The work of the UNICEF Office for Croatia relies on its great volunteer support. Volunteers provide vital assistance by helping to organise events and seminars, packing shipments, translating written material, processing statistical data and many similar forms of assistance.
Volunteers help UNICEF to achieve its goals; they raise funds, offer practical assistance and play a crucial role in initiating change that benefits children both in Croatia and worldwide.
The UNICEF Office for Croatia only organises volunteer activities within our country.
At present, for organisational reasons, the majority of activities that rely on volunteer work are implemented in the City of Zagreb; however, we hope that in the near future we will be able to expand the volunteer support network to include other communities.
Please fill in the form or send us your application with your contact information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like more information about volunteering outside of Croatia please visit the UN Volunteers website.
How can I get copies of UNICEF publications?
Ordering information for UNICEF publications and downloadable PDF files are available through our Publications page.
What does the acronym UNICEF stand for?
UNICEF was established on 11 December 1946 by the United Nations to meet the emergency needs of children in post-war Europe and China. Its full name was the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund. In 1950, its mandate was broadened to address the long-term needs of children and women in developing countries everywhere. UNICEF became a permanent part of the United Nations system in 1953, when its name was shortened to the United Nations Children’s Fund. However, UNICEF retained its original acronym.
