Destelheide & Hanenbos offer high-quality accommodation for groups and individuals, with priority given to youth groups. 

Destelheide & Hanenbos are two separate domains in the same village. Both work together but have their own individual activities. In the Destelheide domain you are stimulated by the artistic environment. In the Hanenbos domain, the forest offers opportunities for groups to get to know the surroundings and nature in an adventurous way

The groups staying in the centres are a source of inspiration for you as an ESC volunteer to help develop the image of the centre.

Learning opportunities for the European Solidarity Corps volunteer:

  • Get to know the different aspects (organisation, impact, etc) of youth work in Belgium

What is the role of the volunteer in the EDUCATIVE DEPARTMENT?

  • Developing environment-related activities such as workshops, educational packages, tours, etc.

What is the role of the volunteer in the COMMUNICATION TEAM?

  • Collecting documentation on the different activities on the domain through different media (interviews, video, photo, etc)
