Bridge the Gap College Prep
Marin City, CA
Bridge the Gap College Prep provides comprehensive educational, social, and emotional support for Marin City youth. This community is facing a significant and unequal impact due to the current pandemic. The youth have limited access to high-quality remote learning, quiet learning spaces, high speed internet, and academic support. In response to this crisis, BTGCP has opened their center as a learning hub for high school students affected by remote learning challenges. Bridge the Gap has also increased individualized tutoring for elementary and middle school students, provided meals, and strengthened collaboration with the local schools and community organizations to have the greatest impact.

The Camella’s Cupboard mission is to provide food for children in the community. This includes week day breakfasts and lunches, weekend and school-break food bags, daily summer lunch programs, and in-school discrete food pantries. These programs are available for children regardless of federal free/reduced lunch qualifications. This dedicated volunteer organization is committed to making sure children have the most basic need- food.
Coyote Central offers arts programs for young people, with a focus on curiosity, creativity, collaboration and equity. Tuition-based classes are "pay what works for you" so cost is never a barrier to creative opportunities. Due to COVID-19, programing has moved on-line. This grant will support their outreach initiative in 2021 that will center on Indigenous youth and art through special projects, events, and partnerships
