ALL of ICAN’s programs are completely free – to youth, their families and the community.

2. Equity

We believe EVERY child and EVERY family deserves access to quality childcare, keeping parents working and kids safe.

3. Prevention

We teach youth the life skills they need now to lay the foundation for a brighter future. Every $1 invested in afterschool programs saves $3 by reducing crime, improving kids’ academic performance, and increasing kids’ earning potential (Afterschool Alliance).

4. Enriching

Not just academics and prevention, programs are enhanced with STEAM, Literacy, Sports, and more – based on current 21st Century Learning Skills that ready kids for the future.

Full tummies make for happier kids! ICAN serves over 100,000 free meals each year, with over 87% of ICAN youth qualify for free and reduced lunch.

6. Expanding

ICAN is adding multiple site-based programs in local partner schools to reach more youth.

7. Partners

Critical alliances with the Chandler Unified School District, Chandler Police, Mesa Public Schools District, and local social service agencies strengthen the support ICAN provides.

8. Quality

National and statewide award winner, including two-time winner of “Outstanding Afterschool Program” and National Council on Accreditation, and the National Summer Learning Association.

9. Legacy

Founded by Henry Salinas over 30 years ago, ICAN remains true to its mission. ICAN is an independent, grassroots organization; all donations remain local.

10. Social Emotional Learning

Even more critical after the pandemic. ICAN infuses the “5C’s of Positive Youth Development” into every lesson – confidence, character, competence, connection and contribution.
