Data from the Ministry of Justice and Security shows that the number of Ukrainian refugees in the Netherlands has grown consistently since the invasion (February 2022). In the first few months, the refugee rate rose rapidly to around 30 thousand, which has since then tripled – notably, this does not include those who haven’t registered at their municipality yet.
Many volunteering organisations have been busy setting up shelters, but also organising sports activities, classes, and social events. To develop and improve these services, Incluzio Leiden has recently published a vacancy for coordinating English classes for Ukrainian refugees in Leiden. To volunteer, you have to be a native speaker or a Dutch person with sufficient knowledge and confidence to speak English. Some of the tasks are:
to coordinate the classes in consultation with coordinators refugee locations;
organise intervision/training for teachers;
to review the exististing teaching methodes and books and purchase new books and materials.
