Friends come in all shapes and sizes.

How does NOAH work?
When you sign up for NOAH, Serve the City will contact you within two weeks to schedule an introductory meeting with you. We would like to get to know you and are curious about who you are and what motivates you to participate in NOAH. Together we will talk about your hobbies and interests and get to know each other. After this Serve the City will look for a NOAH-match, another NOAH that fits your profile and question. After four weeks we will contact you to plan a NOAH-meeting. During this meeting you will get to know your NOAH, we will make practical arrangements together so that you can immediately start planning a NOAH appointment.
As a NOAH duo you meet every two weeks for a period of 6 months. During this period, Serve the City will supervise in the background. If you have a question, or she is stuck with something, you can always come to us. After 6 months we evaluate the NOAH meetings, and you choose whether or not to continue the project.
