AWC (American Woman’s Club)

The American Woman’s Club AWC The Hague was formed in 1930 by a group of American women who had been meeting socially when they decided to organize it in a more formal way. Luncheon invitations were sent to American women living in The Hague, Rotterdam, Amsterdam, and surrounding areas, and as a result, the AWC of The Hague was started with 55 charter members. It is a non-profit organization run solely by volunteers.

You don’t have to be American to join! AWC welcomes women of all nationalities who are English-speakers, and who enjoy learning new skills, making new friends, engaging in cultural and philanthropic activities in and around The Hague. From pickleball to book clubs, from museum exhibitions to philanthropic initiatives, from business networks to tours, the list of opportunities for connection, fun and new experiences is ample.

The AWC is proud to have their own Clubhouse in the Benoordenhout area of The Hague. This easily accessible location forms the heart of the Club. There they meet for many of their regular activities and monthly meetings, as well as philanthropic events, community service projects, teas, and programs. Visit their Philanthropy page for more information.
