From Our Editors

In 1991, Chandler youth were constantly in the news. Gang members were killing other gang members, turning children into statistics. Frustrated by the violence, Henry Salinas sought out gang leaders to ask why they spent their time on the streets instead of at youth centers. As a result of what he learned, he founded ICAN—Improving Chandler Area Neighborhoods—a free program set in local parks and gymnasiums, designed to keep youth active and making more of their lives.

Today, ICAN continues this mission on a larger scale. ICAN's youth programs include homework help, job-skills development, non-traditional learning programs, and social and leadership development. Recently, its Peer Leaders program filmed a public service announcement to point out the dangers of drug use by comparing it to shoe licking, according to an article in AZ Central. A group of teens took part in the project, which will appear before every film for the next four weeks at Harkins theaters in the Chandler Fashion Center and Chandler Crossroads.
