Description:The Hague is the third largest city in the Netherlands and is home to more than 525,000 inhabitants. The greater The Hague region has a population of more than one million people. It is the political and diplomatic capital of the Netherlands and home to organizations such as the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Court, Europol Headquarters and the Peace Palace. As such, it's also named the International City of Peace and Justice and holds the largest pocket of expats and international students in the country.
The city hosts a large international population consisting of diplomats, judicial staff as well as expats from a range of international corporations, who live both in the outskirts of the city, as well as the adjacent town of Wassenaar, which is one of the wealthiest communities in the Netherlands.
This area is a highly strategic place in the international community. Establishing a successful ministry in this area will have a positive impact, not only on the ministry of Young Life in the Netherlands, but also the rest of Europe. With the help of the local Christian expat community, Young Life is looking for a qualified staff person to be present in the lives of the kids by starting new ministry in this strategic place.
