Do you want to get creative and help children and preschoolers with beautiful artworks? Every day children from the ‘Schilderswijk’-neighbourhood come to community centre ‘De Mussen’ to join in one of its many activities. Each Friday afternoon there is crafts, drawing and puzzles for preschoolers. As a volunteer you will be joining the children in their activities and in so doing give them some valuable extra attention. They’ll love it! You don't need any special qualifications to join our activities. There is regular guidance from the organisation who helps you to get started. It will make for an unforgettable afternoon! 

Target group & impact

‘Buurthuis de Mussen’ wants to give kids more individual attention. For many of these kids the community centre is the place to hang out after school. Sometimes over 100 children come in on an afternoon so they could certainly use the help. De Mussen is very happy with your presence! There’s always a lot of enthusiasm going around!


Community centre De Mussen is located right in the middle of the ‘Schilderswijk’-neighbourhood. The community centre is the oldest in The Netherlands and for almost a century now it has played an important role for generations of people in the ‘Schilderswijk’. It offers activities that stimulate the development of children in the fields of participation, sports & health and art & culture. Some 1.200 local residents of all ages and a variety of backgrounds have ties with the community centre.
