International Volunteers

As part of its international development policy, the Prince’s Government created the International Volunteers of Monaco (VIMs) in 2007. 

This programme is aimed at young people aged between 21 and 35, with a higher or technical education qualification and at least one year’s professional experience (internship, mission or job).

It addresses two objectives:

  • It offers young adults an opportunity to gain humanitarian experience in a well-supervised environment  
  • It helps to strengthen field work in cooperation with local partners

Each year, a dozen or so VIMs take part in projects supported by the Department of International Cooperation in response to a precise need expressed by partners.

This is a long-term volunteer programme lasting one year, which is renewable up to a maximum of three years.

Monaco has already sent around 50 volunteers on missions.
