Become a member
We’d love you to join us! Spouse Community Aarhus is a community of enthusiastic international spouses and accompanying partners from all over the world that have settled in Aarhus and made this city our home. Anyone can become a member of Spouse Community Aarhus, whether you or your partner are internationals or Danes. We are lucky enough to have members of many ages and nationalities, both men and women, and some working or volunteering in Aarhus.
We are a non-profit volunteer-based organization and our nominal membership fee of 100kr per year (that’s about the price of two coffees!) goes directly back into putting on our events - so the more members we have, the more awesome events!
As a member you’ll also receive invitations to all our Spouse Community Aarhus events which are free to members (or in the instance there is an entry fee or ticket needed, we negotiate the best price possible for our members), and access to our members-only Facebook forum, a place to connect with members, ask questions and seek advice, and share events and articles.

Get involved – We’re looking for Monthly Coffee Morning hosts!
Do you want to get involved?
Spouse Community is looking for a few friendly volunteers to help host our Monthly Coffee Mornings on Fridays. The tasks include:
+Getting nametags and fliers from Dokk1
+Greeting newcomers and making them feel welcome
+Letting people know what Spouse Community is about (don't worry, we'll help you with this!)
+Taking a few photos of each event
As we are recruiting more than one volunteer, you will have some flexibility and won't have to attend every single event.
Sound interesting? Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and introduce yourself!

French Fridays was created by one of our enthusiastic members, Joy. After realizing that many of our members had previously learned French and wanted to keep it up, she created the initiative to let our members practice!
