Mix & Match Volunteer Job Fair - May 2021 Edition
From small things like finding places to eat and to socialize, to important things like finding housing or a job, we internationals face sharp learning curves as we set up and live our lives here in the Netherlands. We know that all of you are up to the challenge, but it's always nice to have a little help and advice - and to offer what you've learned in your personal journey to others!
In that spirit, we would like to invite you to join us on Tuesday 11 May for our latest “Mix & Match” Networking Event and Volunteer Job Fair! As always, this event will be attended by other local expats and internationals with whom to network, as well as some amazing nonprofit organizations that are eager to work with internationals!
Local service organizations such as Reach & Teach, the Rode Kruis, the Expatriate Archive Centre, NL Cares, Present Den Haag, and Straat Consulaat will be in attendance, as well as other nonprofits that specialize in a wide variety of service areas, including animal care, human rights, social justice, refugee and migrant assistance, homelessness, elderly care, child care, the environment, and so much more. So there is something for everyone, no matter your background or specialization!
And to start off our event, we'll have Volunteer The Hague's very own project manager, Tetyana Benzoural, there to talk to you about how volunteering can help you in your professional endeavors! We know that skills building for the job market is an important topic for those of us in the expat community, and Tetyana will be there to offer insight on how you can gain important job skills through the rewarding work local organizations have to offer!
Anyone can participate in this networking event, so register now for the chance to hear about these organizations in need of volunteers and network with like-minded internationals!
Space is limited, so register now. We look forward to seeing you there!
