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.
The Clubhouse will be open again beginning June 15, 2020 to small gatherings. There will be no set office hours during the summer months, but instead the clubhouse will be open by appointment only. If your group would like to use the clubhouse for a meeting or if you are a prospective member who would like a tour, then please reserve your time and day with Melissa Rider at firstname.lastname@example.org. New guidelines for the use of the clubhouse during COVID-19 can be found here.

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. –
