About ICAN

It's all about the future.

The mission of the ICAN is to help prepare students for future success.

We believe that education leads to greater economic prosperity for individual students, their families, and the communities in which they reside. We also believe that all Iowans benefit as more and more students attain their education and career goals through informed decision making, translating into greater numbers of educated and skilled workers.

To put it simply, more education and job training equals more success for students and for the communities of Iowa.
ICAN’s team of student success advisors help individuals with life-changing decisions pertaining to college and career choices, college affordability and financial aid, and career exploration.

As always, the impact and success of ICAN is made possible only through the continued, generous support of its partners and contributors. The programs and services you support help students make informed decisions when creating a plan for their future, and achieve their education and career goals, launching them on the path to a successful, productive life.

Thank you for your continued support to positively impact Iowa’s youth!
Rob Miller, ICAN President
