ICAN volunteers are a talented and diverse group of people who help out in all facets of the organization.


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.


ICAN is so thankful for Nordstrom, who recently awarded us with a grant to support our Youth Development Program which uses nationally-recognized curriculum to teach youth life skills such as goal setting and positive decision making. Thank you Nordstrom! ... See MoreSee Less
