ICAN: Postivie Programs for Youth is a free, family-centered youth service located in Arizona, where I grew up. They focus on three core prevention areas: substand abuse, gang involvement and juvenile delinquency. 8 out of 10 young people in the areas they 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 ICAN serves. ICAN exists to combat these issues and build a strong future for our community.  ICAN is accredited by the National Council on Accreditation and was recently named “Outstanding After School Program” by the Arizona Center for After School Excellence.
