In accordance with Unesco rules, IOV works according to 7 regional divisions. Therefore, each continent has a regional manager to handle the general administrative duties. After that, each continent is divided into provinces, with a manager and then each provinces includes a collection of countries, each with their own chair, who is elected locally.

 

Each region is coordinated by a Regional Executive Director (RED), which is a member of the Board of Directors.
