iCAN (iCons Alumni Network)
A group of UMass iCons Program alumni officially launched the iCAN organization in the summer of 2016. This international network aims to foster and maintain a powerful sense of community among the alumni of iCons. Their mission: "We believe that we can carry the collaborative spirit of the program out into the world, and by doing so, improve both it and ourselves." iCAN launched their website in June 2017 to provide an information source for iCons graduates and others seeking information about what iCAN has accomplished. On the website, you can read about the social and volunteering events that iCAN has organized as well as hear feedback from participants. There is also a map of where graduates of the iCons program are currently residing to help connect the alumni base.
