About ICAN

The Inner City Alumni Network (ICAN) provides ICIC’s 8,000+ program alumni across the U.S. and Canada with ongoing learning and professional development opportunities, visibility and recognition, and a network through which they can explore contracting and collaboration opportunities.

ICAN’s Growth Story

Since 2022, ICAN has launched seven local chapters in Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, D.C., Los Angeles, and Northern California. These chapters are overseen by dedicated Alumni Steering Committees, whose members play a key leadership role in strengthening the alumni community.

Steering Committees: A Leadership Opportunity

Committee members take on key leadership roles, contributing to the growth and vibrancy of the alumni community. Committee members enjoy heightened visibility within the network, receive priority consideration for speaking engagements, secure coveted invitations to exclusive networking events, and gain VIP access to in-person events.
