Summary

The Buddy Program helps people to create a social network. Integrating in a new country can be difficult without help. A buddy can be a new friend and a help.

Detailed description

The Buddy Program helps people to create a social network. Integrating in a new country can be very difficult without the help of someone who has lived there for a while. So a buddy can be a new friend and a helper.


Buddy seekers and buddy volunteers are matched based on their hobbies, program expectations, language and availability. How many hours a week you want to spend on the buddy program is up to you and your buddy, so it's very flexible.


Your first meeting with your buddy will be with the buddy manager. She will introduce you to each other and provide more information about the organization and the buddy program. After this you are free to meet as often as you want, online or offline.


Having fun

Examples of activities that our buddies have done together :

Taking city ​​or nature walks, getting a coffee, seeing sights in the Netherlands (such as Keukenhof), practicing the language together, trying each other's national cuisine (in a restaurant or by cooking together!) , going to a terrace together, etc.


Help each other

Besides doing fun activities, buddies help each other.

The Netherlands can sometimes be difficult with its many rules. So think of helping with translating mail when you meet, or help with writing or checking a motivation letter, CV, etc.


Buddy Volunteer and Seeker

There are two ways to participate in the Reach & Teach Buddy Program:

1. You are a newcomer to the Netherlands or The Hague and would like to get to know new people, practice a language, do fun things or have someone who can help you with important things can help. Then you can register as a Buddy Seeker.

2. You are interested in getting to know other cultures. You want to exchange ideas with a new friend. You want to make an impact and you have a few hours of free time a week. Then you can become a Buddy Volunteer.


You do not need to have an association with Reach & Teach to join our Buddy Program. Everyone is welcome! Because our organization is located in The Hague, it is easiest and most practical if you live in the The Hague/Rotterdam/Leiden area, so that it is easy to arrange an appointment with your buddy. Click on the link below to fill out the Buddy Form and our Buddy manager will contact you as soon as possible.
