Voluntary work in the Netherlands is a common and highly rated.

Almost every Dutch person has done it in his/her life. By doing voluntary work you develop your skills, meet people and create opportunities for a paid job. You develop your community and help other people. It is an important part of your CV. Your rewards are respect for what you do and personal satisfaction.

In the Global Village there are a lot of opportunities to do voluntary work: organizing activities, developing your own initiatives, promotion, administration, technical maintenance of the equipment, giving Dutch conversation lesson, etc. If you see yourself doing one or more things mentioned here, or even if you are not quite sure what would you like to do, contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
