Our prevention programs are developed specifically to help the kids and families in our community with their challenges & unique needs.

Special events provide ICAN with an opportunity to educate the public about our mission and raise funds and awareness for our quality programs.

ICAN relies on the generosity of volunteers who give of their time to ensure that youth can enjoy everything ICAN has to offer.


ICAN is a free, family-centered youth service in the East Valley providing a full complement of programs proven effective in equipping youth to achieve personal and academic success by tackling substance abuse, gang involvement and juvenile delinquency.

ICAN goes beyond being just an after-school program for at-risk youth. ICAN works with youth on the critical skills they need to be productive and responsible members of the community.

8 out of 10 young people in the areas we serve are living in extreme poverty. Four of those children will go to bed hungry at night and eight will be using drugs or alcohol to cope with the harsh realities they face. Joining gangs becomes a more viable choice than graduation in the community we serve.
This is not an option for ICAN. We exist to combat these issues and build strong futures for them and for our community.
