Who is Aalsmeer for each other?
Aalsmeervoorelkaar is an initiative of various social organizations from Aalsmeer. Aalsmeervoorelkaar is performed by the Vrijwilligerscentrale Amstelland on behalf of the municipality of Aalsmeer.
It is the mission of Aalsmeervoorelkaar to bring the volunteer and the person requesting help together. This can be done through the vacancy page and also by telephone or e-mail . Anyone who wants to make a difference to an individual or an organization is welcome to help.
We believe that volunteers can make a difference. Because everyone has something to offer that someone else is shy about.
Our special attention goes to:
- Independently living elderly and people with vulnerable health (especially in this Corona time)
- Young people: By means of the Voluntary Traineeship we bring young people in contact with those seeking help
We also think it is important to:
- Advising volunteers and organizations
- Offer training and workshops
- Set up recruitment campaigns for new target groups
In this way we inspire as many people as possible to mean something to someone else. We know that volunteering is not only good for people who are being helped, but also for the volunteer himself. Studies have shown that volunteers are happier and healthier than people who don't volunteer. Helping makes happy!
We work from the office and from home. We are enthusiastic about current and future volunteer work every day. Curious who we are? Scroll down.

What really matters is helping others win too."

Coordinator Taalhuis Amstelland
"When you see that a foreign language speaker does dare to speak to you in the supermarket or on the street after a while. Just giving that push towards more confidence and independence. That makes me happy, and that is exactly what the Taalhuis is all about running."
social media manager
