Supporting Marin City Students

We proudly aim to inspire and support the awesome kids of Marin City. Our students are primarily youth of color who come from a variety of ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds. Most attend schools in the Sausalito/Marin City and Tam Union School High School Districts.

Students come to us with many factors influencing their school success and level of self-efficacy. Many also face significant challenges and trauma associated with economic hardship and community marginalization. At Bridge the Gap College Prep, we strive to meet kids where they are, support them in the best way possible, and help them develop the tools they need to grow as students and individuals.

Bridge the Gap College Prep strives to create opportunity and further equity in this wonderful community.

About Marin City

Marin City is a profoundly resilient and tight-knit community full of love and hope. And yet it’s a community of color that has experienced marginalization and economic inequity amid a historically whiter, more affluent surrounding county. In fact, Marin County ranks first in California as the most racially disparate county in California.

This city originated as a wartime ship-building community with Black laborers who migrated from elsewhere in the country. Across decades, systemic racism and economic forces have perpetuated inequity here, leading to the educational disparities Bridge the Gap College Prep seeks to address in our work.
