- Voluntary work/Maastricht/students
- iOS, Android
Anyone who wants to do voluntary work, but doesn’t know exactly what kind, may start with the ‘Maastricht doet’ app. It includes all voluntary work vacancies (in English and Dutch) that are currently available in the city. From supporting former prisoners to helping out in the restaurant of a care home. Each vacancy states the number of hours concerned, whether experience is required, and where it is. You need to join the platform in order to be able to respond.
If there is nothing to your liking, you may post your own advertisement. You state what you would like to do, when you are available, and in what sector you would like to work. Others who need help can also place an ad. For example, there is an elderly gentleman who is looking for a walking companion and an elderly lady who likes to swim but who can no longer do so alone.
In addition to services, the app is also used for offering or requesting free items, knowledge (by means of workshops) and spaces (e.g. for events).
