 Bored in Castlegar is pleased to announce the launch of its new website www.boredincastlegar.com. Designed for youth with input from youth, the website stems from a Community Capacity Building Strategy supported by the BC Healthy Living Alliance (BCHLA) and the Canadian Cancer Society.

As part of the initiative, through a series of public meetings, a panel of youth, service providers and business partners determined that what would best serve the youth community is a “one-stop-shop” website featuring a Calendar of Events for youth activities in Castlegar and area. The resulting website is an interactive space where users can browse information about events, post comments and view photos and videos.
“We’re pleased to provide a place for all members of the community to see what’s going on in Castlegar as well as post relevant events of their own,” says Amy Pol, Bored In Castlegar project coordinator. “It is also a great opportunity for youth to learn new skills by getting involved in the ongoing design and maintenance of the site.”
Pol adds that the site is currently seeking submissions for background designs, which can be drawings or photos and can submitted digitally by emailing
In addition to the youth who sat on the committee and provided feedback throughout theprocess, the Bored in Castlegar committee is thankful to Inner Compass Innovations, Blueberry Creek Community School, Freedom Quest Regional Youth Services, Castlegar and District Youth Center, Castlegar Chamber of Commerce, Castlegar & District Community Complex & Recreation Commission and local businesses.
