2022 One Young World Volunteering Opportunity

Deadline: August 1, 2022.

One Young World is a UK-based charity that gathers together the brightest young leaders from around the world, empowering them to make lasting connections to create positive change.

They stage an annual Summit where the most valuable young talent from global and national companies, NGOs, universities and other forward-thinking organisations are joined by world leaders, acting as the One Young World Counsellors. At the Summit, delegates debate, formulate and share innovative solutions for the pressing issues the world faces.

The One Young World Summit 2022 will take place in Manchester, UK. Over 2,000 young leaders from 190+ countries will be attending the Summit virtually and in-person, and we are looking for volunteers to represent Manchester as the host city by supporting these valuable individuals and showing them Manchester’s best hospitality. Some of these young leaders will have never left their home country before, and for others, this will be their first visit to Manchester. 


  • Volunteering is an opportunity to build experience and develop skills across all areas the Summit touches: Event Logistics & Production, Hospitality, Data Management, Social Media and more!
  • Volunteering for an event like One Young World is your opportunity to make an impact in a global way!
  • Volunteering can also be an opportunity to build confidence and self esteem without the high pressure of a paid work experience


  • You must be over 18 to apply.
  • Please note, this is an unpaid position. One Young World cannot pay for volunteers’ flights or accommodation in Manchester, or provide any visa support.
  • If you are a flexible, dedicated and passionate individual then they are looking for you to help make Manchester 2022 their best Summit yet.
