Castlegar Youth Action Network cares for adopted road

Six Castlegar Stanley Humphrey students took action on Sept. 30 with the local Adopt a Road program.

Six Castlegar Stanley Humphrey students who are members of the local Youth Action Network took action on Sept. 30 with the local Adopt a Road program.

Organized by coordinator Zoe McKay, students met at Mushroom Park on 24th Street at 10 a.m. to begin the walk down both sides of 5th Avenue to 32nd Street.

Wearing vests, using pick-up sticks and checking both sides of the road, they picked up paper, plastics and other debris. The two-hour clean-up sparked conversation about how to keep our community streets garbage free. The students will continue to work to keep their adopted road clean and tidy.

Thank you to participating students Jacob Nickason, Haley Walters, Reegan and Tye Kalin, Taya Lacoss, and Breanne Gordon.

The CYAN is one of 28 Basin wide Youth Network initiatives that have been created by Columbia Basin Trust, in response to the need for more youth activity in the communities across the Basin. What is unique about this program is that all programming is youth led. This means that local youth came up with the idea to adopt and maintain this road.

The CYAN offers drop in and a variety of activities and events for youth 12 to 18 years old. Consistent programming and drop-ins take place every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 3 to 6 p.m. with additional groups or events posted on a monthly basis. Monthly Calendars can be picked up at the Castlegar Community Services, 1007 2nd St. Groups and activities take place at Youth Action Headquarters upstairs to the left.
