ICAN Programs

Programs for Youth

ICAN is a free out-of-school time program serving the East Valley. The program operates at the main ICAN site at 650 E. Morelos St in Chandler, at site-based Chandler locations at Galveston Elementary and Hartford Elementary, and at site-based Mesa locations at Longfellow Elementary and Adams Elementary.

The program runs Monday-Friday from 3pm to 6pm and during summer and breaks from 9am to 5pm. ICAN provides free transportation to the ICAN main site, picking up from area schools (Frye, San Marcos, Bologna, Andersen, Bogle, Willis and Chandler High). ICAN provides daily snacks and dinner to youth participants. Youth are required to attend programs a minimum of 3 days per week and parents are required to attend an orientation before youth join the program.

The 5 C’s of Positive
Youth Development

All of ICAN’s programs focus on Positive Youth Development, a nationally-recognized youth engagement model that focuses not on “fixing” behavior problems, but building and nurturing all a child’s beliefs, behaviors, knowledge, attributes and skills. All activities and lessons have an emphasis on the “5 C’s of Positive Youth Development” – confidence, character, competence, connection and contribution.
