Detailed description

Happy spring season, everyone! After the great turnout at our events last year, the Volunteer The Hague team is excited to be planning our next fun and informative event. Please join us on Saturday, 13 May from 11:00 to 16:00 at The Social Hub of The Hague for a supersized version of our Mix & Match Volunteer Job Fair. This time, our event will be taking place in a bigger venue and on a weekend for added flexibility - with more organizations and more speakers in attendance than ever before!

As always, this volunteer job fair will be a fantastic opportunity 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! The nearly 40 organizations registered so far focus on 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!

To open the event, we'll have Deputy Mayor of The Hague Kavita Parbhudayal in attendance to offer some remarks about the importance of internationals volunteering in our community. And during the event, we'll also have some special guests who will speak about topics of particular interest to local internationals, including how volunteering can benefit skills building, interview tips for the non-profit world, NGO work, and more! We also have some great speakers lined up! For more info on the speakers and the full event program, take a look below. 

And as a special treat, we'll be opening the event with a cake-cutting at 11:30 so that you won't mingle on an empty stomach! 🍰

We hope you'll join us on 13 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!
