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, 11 May from 13:00 to 17:00 at Amare for a supersized version of the Mix & Match Volunteer Job Fair titled Together at Home. This time, our event will be taking place in an even bigger venue in the heart of The Hague - with nearly 100 organizations eager to take on board internationals!

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 100 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 Gert-Jan Aleman, Director of PEP Den Haag, 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. 

This event will take place in the centrally located Amare Den Haag and is organized by PEP Den Haag in collaboration with the Residentie Orkest, Open Amare, Cultuurschakel, and the Municipality of The Hague.

We hope you'll join us on 11 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!
