The American Women’s Club of The Hague is a home-away-from-home for Americans and English-speaking women from around the world. Founded in 1930, we are a volunteer-run organization with non-profit status with the Dutch government.  We are dedicated to providing social and educational activities, and we actively engage in philanthropic and community service projects in The Hague, throughout the Netherlands, and globally.

The AWC Clubhouse, centrally located in the Statenkwartier, is the venue for many of the Club’s activities. These include General Meetings, craft groups, monthly Book Clubs, philanthropic events, as well as potlucks, wine tastings, and seasonal gatherings.


In light of the Dutch government’s new corona guidelines, the AWC Board has decided to close the AWC Clubhouse until further notice. Activities scheduled at the Clubhouse during this period will be canceled.

Jan Kick off meeting 2021

While COVID-19 restrictions are still in place and it is best not to have large gatherings, the American Women’s Club of The Hague plans to have amusing and engaging Kick-Off meetings virtually to celebrate the start of the New Year, welcome new members into our club, and offer information about our virtual activities during lock down. The morning event will be held on Thursday, January 14 from 10am-12 p.m. and the evening one will be on Thursday, January 21 from 7pm-9 p.m.

So, let the fun begin with Icebreaker BINGO! – a game with a slight twist to an old favorite. The rules will be explained at the meeting, but the game will be simple and entertaining for everyone.

Registration is required on our website calendar, in order to receive the Google Meet link as well as a link to your special online BINGO card.

Contact Melissa Rider at with questions.

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. –
