‘Iolani Alumni Events & Activities

ICAN Taking Alumni Service Worldwide: One Team, One Day Coming October 2

The ‘Iolani Community Action Network (ICAN) is calling upon alumni around the world to unite for one day in the spirit of service. On October 2, 2010, ICAN will organize “One Day, One Team” aimed at bettering our global community. 

Groups of alumni in Hawaii, on the U.S. mainland and in Asia have organized service projects for that day to address needs in their particular communities. We encourage alumni to participate in these projects or to plan their own. It doesn’t need to be a big project, or involve a lot of people; the point is to take action and get involved! 

Part of ICAN’s mission is to become a collaborative tool for the ‘Iolani community that will help to create stronger connections and empower active citizenship in their wider communities. One Day, One Team. will be a powerful way that alumni can make that connection.  

To learn more about ICAN and One Day, One Team., visit the alumni online community at or look for ICAN on Facebook at There, you’ll find information about projects that are planned in your area. If you have an interest in organizing your own event, the website also offers resources for planning and promoting your event to fellow alumni.
