Volunteering with YMCA

Almost everyone connected to YMCA Den Haag is a volunteer. Most of those volunteers are active at youth activities, or summer camps, while we also host activities for young adults and the elderly. All these activities would of course be non existent without eager activity coordinators, treasurers and board members.

We are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to develop, guide and coordinate our activities and youth projects. Do you want to help us?
