The time has come for YOU to replace these absolute babes and TAKE OVER the Hague! Here, in ESN, every board meeting feels like a chat with good friends; every event is like a precious baby that we are raising together and every day in the office feels like a second home.
On a more serious note, being part of ESN The Hague, means being part of the largest student network in Europe! Erasmus Student Network was first founded in 1989 and it currently has over 20.000 members in 280 sections (mostly) around Europe. We made it our mission to help and support international students while cherishing diversity and the richness of culture. Our section was founded in 2017 and since then, we've been organizing parties, pub quizes, game nights and all sorts of events that bring students together.
We aim to make the Hague feel like home - and now it's your time to help fulfil this goal!
As a board member, you will have the financial, logistical and moral support needed to implement your ideas and turn them into reality! The board structure is a linear, flexible one which means that no matter your position, you can get involved in all of the other committees! At the end of your term, you'll look back and realise that you have become more than your chosen position - a good friend, a supportive team member, a charismatic team-leader and a person with a diverse set of skills.
