UNICEF is committed to diversity and inclusion within its workforce, and encourages all qualified candidates, irrespective of nationality, religious and ethnic backgrounds, gender identity and sexual orientation, as well as persons living with disabilities, to apply to become a part of the organization. UNICEF’s office is accessible to a certain extent, and employees are entitled to reasonable accommodations that are needed for ensuring equitable working conditions.

Through volunteering, young people are provided with opportunities to gain skills and experience while contributing to sustainable development efforts, thus increasing their chances at the global labour market, and becoming active citizens. Volunteerism is universal and should be accessible to everyone, regardless of their background or social status. Creating and promoting opportunities for young people to volunteer in ways that are meaningful, accessible, valued and supported will result in young people’s active participation in society and skills building for better employment and quality of life, which will further strengthen youth empowerment in Serbia.

To increase the participation of adolescents, UNICEF has developed a digital platform for volunteering (volonterinamrezi.rs). This volunteer management platform is a sustainable online platform that drives change and brings awareness of young people’s participation. The platform has to ensure specific security compliance in line with UNICEF security standards (CLASSI), and provide data management and software hosting in Serbia or in one of the countries of the Council of Europe as per GDPR regulation (with a special focus to the adolescents under 18).
