Why Join Us

By becoming a volunteer at Shaping Europe, you’ll be at the forefront of driving positive change. Your efforts will directly contribute to shaping the future of Europe while honing your writing, leadership and marketing skills in a collaborative environment.

While most of our work is done remotely, we find it important to come together in person regularly to brainstorm, get to know each other, and have fun! We find it important that all of Shaping Europe volunteers can attend these gatherings, and therefore we will only consider applicants that are based in the Netherlands.

Availability required is between four and five hours a week.
