Select an activity from our online calender and make an impact whenever it suits you
As a volunteer you assist the children as they visit the petting zoo. You also provide them with information on the animals. After a short introduction by the caretaker you’re good to go! Some of the children are a bit anxious when it comes to petting animals; you, of course, will be there to set their minds at ease. After all, what could be more fun than hugging guinea pigs, rabbits and goats? Be sure to wear clothes that can get a little dirty.
Note: when, at some point, there are no children, you may be asked to help out with farm activities.
A lot of children nowadays have no idea where milk, eggs and meat come from. The urban farm familiarizes children with animals and teaches them to treat them well. The children help out at the farm, feed the animals and do small chores.
Urban farm ‘Schildershoeve’ is located right in the middle of the ‘Schilderswijk’-neighbourhood of The Hague. Here children can learn about the day-to-day activities on a farm. ‘De Schildershoeve’ not only has great educational value, it also serves as a meeting place for young and old alike.
