ACCESS is looking for 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.

ACCESS, a RISS partner, is looking for international volunteers!

ACCESS is a not-for-profit organization located in the centre of The Hague that also provides Helpdesk teams in partnerships with the municipalities of Amsterdam, The Hague, Utrecht and Leiden. Teams of international volunteers help the international community in the Netherlands by answering questions about moving to, settling and living in the Netherlands. ACCESS also provides support and guidance to internationals to help make living in the Netherlands more enjoyable and productive.

Lisa, a current volunteer, had this to say about working at ACCESS:

"After my two children started secondary school I was eager to do something for myself and my community. ACCESS volunteering seemed the perfect fit as I can offer my experience as an expat to Internationals relocating to the Netherlands. I started working for ACCESS in August this year and couldn’t have hoped for a more positive start. The team have been so accommodating and supportive. They have also boosted my confidence so much that I now feel like a professional adult again rather than “just a mum”. There is a wealth of knowledge within the team and I have gained so much information about the Leiden I thought I knew so well. I highly recommend it to anyone who has some spare time to join ACCESS as a volunteer. Who knows? It might just change your life. It did for me". - Lisa, ACCESS Volunteer
