Volunteer Job Fair
- Date: 13 May 11:00 - 16:00
- Location: The Social Hub The Hague
Mix & mingle with fellow expats from The Hague region, as well as representatives from local NGOs and service organizations eager to work with internationals!
Happy spring season, everyone! After the great turnout at their events last year, the Volunteer The Hague team is excited to be planning their next fun and informative event. Please join them 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, their 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 they'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, they'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, they'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! (Please note that the full program will be announced in early April and will be updated as new speakers are added.)
Join them 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!
