Hanenbos works cross-border and opens up new horizons.

Hanenbos is, therefore, firmly committed to international operations by participating in exchange projects such as:

  • networking with other youth centres through the Council of Europe’s European Platform for Youth Centres,
  • stimulating cultural exchange among young people through international projects such as the Youth Exchange,
  • offering European volunteers of the European Solidarity Corps an unforgettable experience by giving them an internship in our Centre for Youth, Art and Creation.

European Solidarity Corps

Within the framework of international exchanges, the Hanenbos centre welcomes additional helping hands from another European country every year. 

Thanks to the European Solidarity Corps, European volunteers have the opportunity to gain experience in Hanenbos within their field of expertise, discover the host country, learn the local language and meet people from all over Europe.

Quality Label

Hanenbos was the first youth centre in Belgium to be awarded the Quality Label of the Council of Europe and immediately conquered the sixth place in Europe! 

This quality label is an award for work done as a centre of excellence for youth work according to the strict standards of the Council of Europe. The Council of Europe was full of praise for Hanenbos' clear profile as a centre for youth, nature and adventure.
