If you want to commit yourself to helping other people, there is all kinds of volunteer work in the city. Volunteering is meaningful for society and for you: volunteer work can help you to develop new skills and expand your social network. In addition, volunteering is hip! Almost half of Dutch people over the age of 15 do or have done volunteer work. Read more about volunteering as an international on the website of The Hague International Centre.
