volunteering for amsterdammers.

Serve the City Amsterdam was founded in 2006 by Brigitte Vonck-Makkinje as part of a global volunteering movement.

Every week, we organize different social, practical, green, and culinary volunteering activities in Amsterdam. This means we connect Amsterdammers to all kind of volunteering projects such as park clean-ups, pancake baking for the homeless, cooking for shelters, gardening activities at city farms, walking with the elderly, …

Besides that, we organize a monthly Serve the City Action Day, where all our volunteers come together and join forces to make our city a nicer and greener place for everyone.

Although Serve the City is a Christian organization we are open to everyone. This means that we have volunteers with different cultural backgrounds, religions, traditions, languages.

who we are serving.
a volunteering movement for everyone.

Serve the City partners with homeless shelters, refugee centers, orphanages, and other associations offering help and support to people in need.

We create events that mobilize many volunteers to serve in simple ways – sports, music, arts and crafts, meals, friendship and more. We are the connection between the good intentions and talents of people who could volunteer and a meaningful opportunity to get involved.

Serve the City is a volunteering movement for everyone.
