RISS Highlights

News and Events

On Monday the 22nd of August we are welcoming over 100 new students to our community! We are very excited to meet all the new students. On Tuesday the 23rd, all returning students will also be coming back to school.

Almost every month, ACCESS organises a morning information session to recruit new volunteers. This is an important event for us and for those who want to become volunteers. During this meeting, we give an informative presentation on ACCESS, its organisational structure and our volunteers. 

RISS and ACCESS have successfully partnered over the years. Teams of international volunteers help the international community in the Netherlands by answering questions about moving to, settling and living in the Netherlands.
