Birdies For Charity Spotlight: ICAN (Iowa College Access Network)

ICAN is a program that focuses on increasing the proportion of Iowans and Americans with high-quality degrees and credentials to succeed in their career aspirations. With over 150 years of combined experience in financial aid and college planning, ICAN works in over 99 percent of Iowa high schools to provide the tools
and to motivate Iowa’s youth to pursue some form of secondary
education or training. Many students that ICAN assist come from low-income households and are attempting to become first generation college students. ICAN not only helps these students turn their dreams of attending college into a reality, they also prepare them to succeed in these environments as many college students will still struggle to achieve their bachelor’s degree. For Iowa to continue growing economically, more and more students need to earn a secondary education and ICAN helps students from all backgrounds attend college and earn their degree.
