Volunteer At The Expatriate Archive Centre

21 January 2013

Volunteering for the Expatriate Archive Centre is a great way to help us preserve expat history while gaining new skills and meeting interesting people.

The Expatriate Archive Centre preserves the life stories of expats and repats worldwide. Based in The Hague, it is run by a small, dedicated team who are supported by enthusiastic volunteers.

We are looking for assistant archivists, PR and marketing people, web researchers, translators, and book reviewers. If you have an inquisitive mind, are interested in history, and are willing to commit at least 3 hours a week then please get in touch.


Here are some quotes from past volunteers: “As a volunteer, I have been able to have autonomy in selecting tasks I would like to be involved in“, “Another advantage was that the EAC is an English speaking environment“, “I am building up networks and connections which are of a great importance nowadays“, “[The staff] have a knack for making volunteers feel welcome and at home, are genuinely caring people and are thankful for the work that we do“.

If you would like to volunteer for the Expatriate Archive Centre or if you want to know more, please send us an email on welcome@xpatarchive.com or phone070 427 2014 (during office hours, Mon-Thu 10:30am – 3pm). Let us know a little bit about your background, and we can arrange for you to come in for an informal chat.
