A MULTI-PURPOSE trailer decked out with three televisions, a mixing desk, built-in PA system and slide-out barbecue is the latest addition to the Youth Connect team.
Toowoomba Regional Council's three tonne trailer will be used primarily for Youth Connect activities, but will also be a resource which any Council section can use for activities across the region.
Councillor Ros Scotney said it would allow the Youth Connect team to take the show on the road, literally.
"It was purpose built for council and has been used for seniors' IT workshops at Clifton and Crows Nest and will be set up at Toowoomba Royal Show," she said.
"Youth Connect will run various programs around the region, and other council branches will be able to use the trailer for education and information sessions."
Cr Scotney said the Youth Connect team had seen similar trailers used by other youth services, in particular Redlands Council, before fine-tuning designs for the TRC unit.
