SERVE THE CITY is a global movement of volunteers showing kindness in personal ways to people in need.
Who is Serve the City?
Serve the City partners with homeless shelters, refugee centres, orphanages, and other local associations, and offers the practical help and support of volunteers.
Start Serve the City!
The homeless, asylum seekers, the elderly, the disabled, children in need, victims of abuse. We know them by their needs. What if we knew them by name?
What's Happening?
Every month we host a number of events to inspire, help, and give our city leaders new ideas, connect, and share!
Give to Serve the City
We have a lot of ways for you to give, with time, resources, expertise, and more!


22-25 October

The 2020 International Forum will be unlike any Forum before… Just as the year 2020 has ben unlike any other year! The Forum is not cancelled, and we have a truly global forum planned for you! The theme for 2020 has been “Kindness starts with me!” and that has been something which we have taken to heart in the midst of this COVID-19 pandemic. So we have adjusted our plans to make the 2020 Forum fit into the reality many of us find ourselves in.

  • It was challenging but it was amazing to serve people and learn from them. It is an experience that shapes you and one that you will never forget. You carry these people in your hearts.

    Edwina Brussels
  • Serve The City facilitated that basic human need of mine: to help others. Scratching that itch feels good.

    Omar Dublin
  • Anyone who thinks one person cannot make a difference will see that one person makes all the difference when you are with Serve the City. It is changing the world one person at a time! Don't miss the opportunity to experience it.

    Kristen Amsterdam
  • To have the opportunity to serve the city I live in and its people is simply wonderful!

    Lorraine Dublin
  • My view of the people in Amsterdam changes as I do volunteer work and connect with other people.

    Brigitte Amsterdam
  • It's amazing how healing human touch can be, sitting eye to eye, communicating in halting French and broken English.

    Diana Brussels
  • The more I engaged on an individual level, the more I grew to love hearing their stories and jokes, and the more I realized that people are no less human and in need of interaction simply because of their age.

    Ryan Brussels
  • Our organisation is starting a campaign on poverty, therefore we thought it important that our team-building activity is related to this issue and gives us very practical insight into the needs of the local community. Serve the City could not have chosen a more suitable project for us, thank you!
