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.
