This rating was published 10/01/2019 and includes data from FY2018, the most recent 990 received at that time.

For over 28 years, ICAN has remained dedicated to its mission to provide free, comprehensive programs that empower youth to be productive, self-confident, and responsible members of the community. ICAN's nationally-recognized prevention programming teaches disadvantaged youth real-life skills including goal setting, positive decision making and how to avoid the risky behaviors that are prevalent in the community ICAN serves. ICAN's programming equips youth to achieve personal and academic success. ICAN is accredited by the National Council on Accreditation and was recently named "Outstanding Afterschool Program" by the AZ Center for After School Excellence. ICAN is unique because our programming, including healthy meals and transportation, is offered free of charge to remove the barriers that can prevent low income families from accessing needed services. ICAN serves 500 largely minority youth living in low-income Chandler neighborhoods.
