Little Scholars

Supporting Marin City’s curious K - 3rd graders as we learn, play and grow alongside them.

Little Scholars Program:
K - 3rd

  • Little Scholars meet from 6:30 - 7:30pm on either Wednesdays or Thursdays.
  • Healthy snacks are provided and happily received.

We love our Little Scholars! 1st – 3rd grade students are introduced to Bridge the Gap College Prep in this one-on-one support program. Volunteer tutors are paired individually with young students and meet weekly at our Marin City Center throughout the school year.

Our main focus is helping students develop a love for reading and build literacy skills, and we strive to have fun in the process. We’re supporting academic growth, while at the same time honoring the power of personal connection to help develop trust and boost confidence.
