Building more than muscles

Musa Naji, a BC junior who lived in Yemen until about six years ago, said the program has been challenging and rewarding.

"I loved it...they made you do more than you could, and then make you do something that you can't do," he said.

Even for those who are native speakers, I Can provided an opportunity to interact with others in a low pressure environment and make some new friends along the way, said freshman Courtney Trevett.

"I liked it because you had group support and you weren't alone," she said.

Right now, the plan is to run the I Can program again over the summer and invite some of the recent graduates back to mentor new ones.
