Ready your mind
1. Welcome to the Crew!
If you're a new employee, volunteer, or board member, you will be sent or have already completed a New Hire/Intern/AmeriCorps Form, Volunteer Application, or New Board Member Form. When you submit that form, it creates a profile in our database which allows us to send you the login information to your portal.
2. Log into your CAN Portal
You will be sent an email with a link and password (online access code) to log into your portal. We recommend you bookmark your portal URL so you can easily access your portal in the future.
3. Begin your training
All of the online forms and trainings you need to complete before you begin at CAN will be ready to open and complete in your portal.

Tools & Resources
CAN has a WEALTH of tools, resources, and links to other materials we have found incredibly helpful while working with our children, youth, and families in our more than 30 years of service to our communities.
Look for materials related to mindfulness, math tips & tricks, reading with children & youth, writing prompts, social-emotional development, STEM, and more.
Before anyone creates any new content for Community Action Network, make sure it follows CAN's Style Guidelines.
CAN's brand is our promise to our stakeholders that we are an identifiable force for good in our community, always fighting for brighter futures. Brand identity is a visual representation of an organization. Like people, the way we (our content) looks has very real implications on audience perception.
