Quality Label for Youth Centres

In 2019, the de Hoge Rielen was awarded the Quality Label for Youth Centres by the Council of Europe. As a centre with this quality label, we want to fully propagate the themes of democracy, constitutional state and human rights, both in our operations and in our activities. 

This quality label is awarded at the European level to centres with a focus on youth work and non-formal learning. The youth centres must be linked to national authorities and have their own infrastructure (with facilities for catering and accommodation), in which it is possible to organise activities with youth groups. To obtain the quality label, each youth centre must also have its own educational team to develop (international) activities within its own profile.

The Council of Europe ensures that the values they uphold in their European policies are reflected throughout the operation of recognised youth centres. They mainly concern tolerance, accessibility, sustainability, customer friendliness, participation, intercultural learning and social inclusion.
