ROSEWOOD'S reputation as a quiet country town will not apply during these school holidays, with a new activity hub for the region's young people.

The newly-launched Rosewood Youth Hub will host parties, barbecues and workshops every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening until January 19.

Community groups, including the Queensland Police and local youth services, have joined forces with Ipswich City Council and YoungLife Australia to help deliver the special program.

Hub events will run from 4pm to 10pm on the specific nights at the Anzac Park Hall in Rosewood.

Youth and Seniors Committee chairwoman Sheila Ireland hopes young people would take advantage of the free program.

"Council has worked hard to come up, in conjunction with the community, with a program which should help to keep boredom at bay," Cr Ireland said.

Upcoming hub events include barbecues, creative arts activities, hip-hop and shuffling dance workshops, music workshops, personal safety training and a Party Safe Program run by Queensland Police.

Young people can visit the hub during opening hours and talk to organisers to find out more.

Otherwise, visit theswich.com or call council on 3810 6655.
