What We Do 

We foster a fun, friendly, and supportive community to experience this wonderful country together.


Day and Evening Monthly Meetings

Daytime AWCA General Meetings are typically held on the first Monday of each month from September through June at 10 a.m. in the heart of Amsterdam. The first hour is socializing. The meeting begins at 11 a.m and includes club announcements and a speaker.

If you would like more information on our General Meetings, please contact membership@awca.nl.

The evening version of our General Meetings, At Night is more intimate, but also includes interesting speakers and time to socialize! At Night meetings are typically held the second Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m.

For more information, please contact our At Night coordinator at atnight@awca.nl.


Newcomers

AWCA Newcomers events are held every month. We have coffees, lunches and evening events, giving newcomers the chance to meet each other and other AWCA members.

In addition to helping you meet other club members, you will have an opportunity to discuss information and resources to help you acclimate to life in Amsterdam.

For more information on Newcomers, please contact the Membership Chair at membership@awca.nl.



Support

While AWCA reaches out to help with Philanthropy and FAWCO, we also reach in. Members can all turn to the Support Committee for assistance, whether they are experiencing sadness due to a death in the family or a divorce, or needing help with meals after the birth of a baby or while a broken leg mends.


Community Service

As a main pillar of the AWCA, philanthropy is an important element within our organization. Over the years we have supported various projects including the Blijf Groep, an organization and shelter system whose objective is to prevent and stop domestic violence; the Leefkringhuis, a grass roots project in North Amsterdam that provides shelter for youth and assistance in various forms to their parents; and De Kloof, a homeless day shelter.

As part of a global organization, we participate with other FAWCO (Federation of Women's Clubs Overseas) Clubs to spread awareness and raise funds for the FAWCO Target Program. The newly launched FAWCO Target Program focuses on a sustainable investment supporting women's and girls' education.

We welcome our members contributions of time, ideas and energy to the programs and charities our club supports and assistance to the community around us in Amsterdam.


Family Events

As Americans and friends of America, it is essential to uphold our family traditions even as we settle far from home. So throughout the club, family events are held for the most commonly celebrated holidays in the U.S. – Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter and Independence Day. Sometimes the events will surprise you – Pie Night instead of dinner on Thanksgiving (it’s a working day after all), or a full-blown Martha Stewart-style Thanksgiving dinner in a stable (with horse!) – you never know! And Independence Day is rarely celebrated on July 4 itself, but Uncle Sam is always there.
