2021 - CAN: Educational Resource Development for K-12 Youth
The goal of CAN's educational programs is to support the
children CAN partners with so they will achieve their highest
academic potential and become self-supporting, well-adjusted
adults. As a part of CAN's after school programs and educational
summer camps, the youth participate in a variety of rotations
including, but not limited to, homework, math, reading, writing,
mindfulness and other social-emotional learning strategies, art &
design, and many other forms of enrichment as well as meals and
snacks. CAN VISTAs are a major part in developing high-quality
curricula, lesson plans, staff training processes, policies and
procedures, and so much more! CAN education VISTAs also help to
identify emerging strategies and to assist in testing and refining
their application for K-12 youth. Further help on this page can be
