Youth Career Awareness Network (YCAN)

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.
