Request an ICAN speaker to learn about our mission, service dogs, and more.
You can request an ICAN speaker for your organization, business, church, or civic group and learn how our service dogs are helping individuals with disabilities and inmates overcome challenges.
Learn about the abilities our service dogs provide for individuals, and the skills our handlers gain from training the dogs.
Our presentations last 30 minutes to an hour, based on the age of your audience, with additional time for questions at the end. Depending on the size of your group, we usually have two volunteers or staff members give the presentation with at least one dog-in-training.
We cater each presentation to the needs of your group, and you'll learn a lot about our mission in just a short amount of time!
Our presentations are a great fit for schools, businesses, and community organizations.
Want to request an ICAN speaker for your next event or teaching moment? Kid- and adult-friendly, our speakers focus on ICAN’s service to the greater Indiana community. We explain our extensive ICAN model that's based on positive reinforcement, including exactly what service dogs can be trained to do.
Another presentation focus is the social benefit to our community. We teach students, teachers, and employees about interacting with service dogs and their companions, as well as the multiple benefits of using carefully chosen incarcerated handlers as dog trainers.
Our presenters will provide an informative and educational experience about our mission for any community audience.

There is no charge for presentations within the greater Indianapolis area, but we always welcome donations or gift cards. For speaking engagements taking place outside of Indianapolis, we charge a mileage and per diem fee to cover costs, and the amount is based on the location and length of the presentation.
Please submit your request at least 60 days prior to the requested date. To help us determine the availability of staff or volunteers as we review our schedule, a member of our team will be in touch within two business days.
