Community Action Network(CAN) partners with children, youth and families from under-resourced Washtenaw County neighborhoods to create better futures for themselves and to improve the communities in which they live.
CAN’s programs are coordinated in partnership with individuals, families and communities. CAN services enable families to meet basic needs, and create better futures. For children and youth, CAN prepares them to become healthy, well-adjusted, self-sufficient adults.
CAN’s after school programs provide every weekday academic support and enrichment, personal growth and life skills, supportive adults and employment preparation. Summer camps prevent summer loss of learning and fun enrichment activities. Academic support include advocacy in schools and strengthening the parent/school relationships. CAN students’ high school graduation rate is 96%.
