Management by ADJ

The General Agency for Youth Tourism ensures the equal treatment of all users in accommodation centre de Hoge Rielen and in youth education centre Destelheide. The Agency also applies the following principles:

In general

  • ADJ adheres to the pedagogic principles of youth work and manages both centres on the basis of an integrated environmental policy - both in its daily operations and when drawing up the regulations.
  • In setting its prices, concluding contracts, recruiting personnel and purchasing goods and services, ADJ attaches great significance to a healthy financial management.

For De Hoge Rielen

ADJ manages and develops de Hoge Rielen:

  • in first instance as a youth accommodation centre;
  • but also as a centre in which it is possible to organise multifunctional activities and innovative nature education initiatives for young people.

For Destelheide

ADJ manages and develops the youth education centre Destelheide:

  • in first instance as a receptive youth education centre;
  • but also as a centre in which it is possible to organise multifunctional activities and innovative nature education initiatives for young people.
