Are you ready for a meaningful role where you can directly contribute to the well-being of fellow Amsterdam residents?

What does the role entail?
As a neighborhood volunteer, you have some spare time and want to help your local residents who are facing difficulties in life. Some rsidents need a helping hand to keep life comfortable. You provide in doing groceries, chores in the house, or simply having a meaningful conversation over a coffee or a tea. In the process you develop lasting connections to local residents.

What do we offer?
A match. When you apply, Bruno from Buurtteam Nieuwmarkt will give you a call. He invites you to ‘De Boomspijker’, the local community centre. Together you discuss your motivation, the type of work and type of people that suit you, and how much time you would like to spend. Bruno helps you to match with a local resident.
A warm welcome. The first time you meet the resident, you won’t be alone. You’ll be accompanied by a staff member from the Buurtteam who is already familiar with the resident and their questions.
Guidance. Before and after your first independent visit, Bruno will give you a call. He will check in with you and debrief with you afterward.
Training and community. Last but not least: you become part of a friendly group of neighborhood volunteers around De Boomspijker community center in the Nieuwmarkt area. You will be able to attend communal activities and trainings.

Who are you?
You have 1-2 hours available, every two weeks, to help a neighbor. You are sociable, patient, resilient, and not easily discouraged. You understand that you may develop personal relationships and are willing to commit for a longer term (at least several months) as a neighborhood volunteer at Buurtteam Nieuwmarkt.
