International volunteering opportunities in Eindhoven

Volunteering is the perfect way to get to know other people, especially if you are new to the Netherlands. You get in touch with locals that you wouldn't meet at work or at university, you volunteer with other (young) professionals and students and you can practice your Dutch. Currently there are different activities in which you can participate even if you do not speak Dutch (too well) yet. These activities are recommended, but if you want to volunteer with f.i. handicapped or children, check out the online calendar.

Want to sign up? Subscribe on the calendar or send an e-mail to mentioning the date and the activity that you want to join.

Not an Eindhoven Cares volunteer yet? Register as a volunteer or send an e-mail mentioning your personal information (name, address, phonenumber, current job/study) and we'll make sure you are signed up.

NB: Nederland Cares facilitates volunteering activities for citizens of the 31 countries in the European Economic Area (other than Croatia). Citizens of countries outside of the EEA or from Croatia require a valid working permit for the Netherlands in order to volunteer. If you are a citizen of a non-EEA country or from Croatia we kindly ask you to send an additional e-mail to We require you to visit us personally to provide proof of your working permit and identification before we can complete your enrollment.

We hope to see you soon at one of the our activities!
