Youth Career Awareness Network (YCAN) is an innovative learning lab formed in partnership between the Saginaw ISD and YMCA of Saginaw. YCAN is an extension of the Saginaw ISD Work-Based Learning (WBL) Program and provides vocational training to students from across Saginaw County through hands-on learning opportunities as well as direct teacher instruction in a community-based location. Throughout the school year, students learn as they work in several stations throughout the YMCA. Skills such as customer service, food preparation, and maintenance are just a few of the focus areas.
