SummaryMix & mingle with fellow expats from The Hague region, as well as representatives from local NGOs and service organizations eager to work with internationals!
After the great turnout at our last event in May, the Volunteer The Hague team is hard at work planning our next fun and informative event for our local international community! Please join us on Saturday, 18 November from 11:00 to 15:00 at The Social Hub of The Hague for our autumn Mix & Match Volunteer Job Fair. Once again, this will be a supersized version of the event, taking place in a bigger venue and on a weekend for added flexibility - with more organizations and more speakers in attendance than ever before!
Our volunteer job fairs are fantastic opportunities to expand your social circles by meeting fellow internationals from the area with whom you can share your experiences and tips about living in and around The Hague. And you'll be able to expand your professional networks as well, since we'll also have representatives from local NGOs and nonprofit organizations in attendance - all of whom are eager to work with international volunteers in a short-term occasional or a long-term committed volunteer opportunities! Our last event in May had nearly 30 organizations in attendance, and we're expecting a similar turnout in November. These NGOs and service organizations cover a wide variety of fields and interests, including human rights, social justice, refugee and migrant assistance, homelessness, animal causes, elderly care, child care, the environment, and so much more. There will be something for everyone, no matter your background or specialization!
We hope you'll join us on 18 November for this fantastic learning and networking opportunity! Space is limited, so please be sure to save the date and register ASAP. We look forward to seeing you there!
