The Regional Youth Bus is a youth centre on wheels complete with the latest in modern technology.

The Regional Youth Bus will be paying a visit to Brinkworth this coming weekend.

Formally an Adelaide Metro bus, the RYB has been converted into a bricks and mortar youth centre on wheels that travels around the Mid and Lower North regions of the state.

Fitted out with the latest in technology including WiFi, gaming consoles, computer screens and even a space for a DJ to set up shop, the bus is a safe and supervised environment for youth in regional towns to hang out and have a good time with their friends.

The bus supports young people in regional communities by holding fun activities, education referrals and increasing support services.

Visitors can also talk to the staff of the RYB and pick up information about career planning, health and well being. 

The bus was first established in 2013 by the Barossa Lower North Futures organisation and services the Barossa, Light, Goyder, Mallala and Wakefield Council Regions.

It is a collaborative effort between Barossa Lower North Futures, South Australian Police, local government and community volunteers.

Stationed at the Brinkworth Memorial Hall on November 12, the RYB will be open for use from 2pm and 4pm for young locals aged between 12 and 25 years of age.
