The AWC The Hague is a home-away-from-home for women from more than a dozen countries with an affinity for America. Founded in 1930, our non-profit organization is run solely by volunteers. We are dedicated to providing opportunities for social and educational activities for English-speaking women. We actively engage in philanthropic and community service projects in The Hague region, throughout the Netherlands and in the larger global community.
The AWC Clubhouse, centrally located in the Statenkwartier, is the venue for many of the Club’s activities, including General Meetings, Craft Group, Kids’ Club and Book Club as well as potlucks, wine tastings and fitness classes.

The AWC Rose
Its stem symbolizes continuity with the past. Its leaves, those who work with you. The thorns, the difficult decisions you have to make. The flower is the result of your efforts, its color the delicacy with which you accomplish your task. –
