Mix & Match Volunteer Job Fair

Join Volunteer The Hague and dozens of the local non-profits on Thursday, 6 October for a Mix & Match Volunteer Job Fair, taking place from 11:30hrs to 14:30hrs at The Hague Humanity Hub City Centre!

Mayor of The Hague, Jan van Zanen, will open the Mix & Match Volunteer Job Fair with a “Welcome Address to the International Community” followed by the keynotes speaker giving a short presentation on how to revamp your CV, with a particular emphasis on including volunteering and internships as leverage for job success. Shortly after, Volunteer The Hague project manager will give a presentation on how volunteering can sharpen current skills, expand your skill set into new territory, and positively impact your job prospects and professional life.

As always, this event will be attended by many local expats with whom you can network and share your experiences and tips about living in The Hague region, in addition to some 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! This event is also a good chance for professional networking for volunteer and other opportunities as well. And remember, Dutch language fluency is NOT required!

Finally, there will also be a raffle during the event where a few lucky attendees will win some fun prizes!
