SummaryMix & mingle with fellow expats from The Hague region, as well as representatives from local NGOs and service organizations eager to work with internationals!
We're back, everyone! After two years of COVID protocols and virtual events, the VTH team is gearing up for our first in person event since 2020, and we couldn't be more excited! Please join us on Thursday, 19 May for a Mix & Match Volunteer Job Fair, taking place from 11:30 to 14:30 at The Hague Humanity Hub!
As always, this event will be attended by other local expats with whom you can network and share your experiences and tips about living in The Hague region, in addition to some fantastic NGOs and nonprofit organizations that are eager to work with internationals! These organizations focus on a wide variety of interests, 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!
During the event, we'll have two special guests who will speak about topics of great importance in our community: First, Gerko Visée from The Hague International Centre will give a short presentation on the local job market titled, Expats Connected: Jobs, Volunteering, and Working in The Hague." And later during the event, VTH project manager Tetyana Benzoural will give a presentation titled, "How to Advance Your Career Goals Through Volunteering," where she'll discuss the many benefits that volunteering can bring to skills-building, current career advancement, and career reorientation for internationals in our community!
Finally, we'll also be holding a raffle during the event, where a few lucky attendees will win some fun prizes!
We hope you'll join us on 19 May for this fantastic learning and networking opportunity! Space is limited, so please be sure to register ASAP. We look forward to seeing you there!
