The campaign"People Make Den Haag 'yields more volunteers in The Hague. Recruiting people for voluntary work is very tricky according to Lucas Meijs, professor of voluntary work at the RSM. 

However, that does not imply that the municipality cannot do anything to recruit volunteers. 

Professor of voluntary work Lucas Meijs, says that it is very hard to get more people to it volunteer. “Simply because many people in the Netherlands are already volunteering. The number is already somewhere between 40 and 50 percent. That is almost one out of two! You won't get that percentage higher any time soon."
