If you are looking for extra ways to extend your support network, help others, get to know Dutch better or broaden your CV? Volunteering is the perfect way to gain some new experiences, skills and to expand your network in The Netherlands.
Many internationals who come to the Netherlands are curious about volunteering and connecting with local Dutch non-profit organizations, but don’t know where to start. How can one find opportunities? Are Dutch language skills necessary? And what are the benefits of volunteering?
The 30 minutes programme is split into three segments:
- Representatives from volunteer organisations Access and Wool for Warmth discuss volunteering.
- A short film about Volunteer The Hague’s services
- Two international volunteers share their experiences and motivations for volunteering and discuss the benefits such as how it can be a great way to network, gain job skills, and expand your social circle!
Volunteer The Hague is a project funded and founded by the Municipality of The Hague and powered by PEP Den Haag. They connect internationals with meaningful volunteer opportunities at local non-profit organizations.
