Learning Hubs in Marin County
Learning Hubs provide a safe space, supportive adult supervision, and broadband internet access, so that students can successfully engage in distance learning.
Many families already disproportionately affected by the economic and health impacts of COVID-19 (BIPOC, essential workers, low-income, and those with challenging life circumstances) have also experienced new education-related structural inequities.
Our data shows, however, that only about 6% of Marin's 9,500 low-income students currently have access to a Hub.
That's why numerous community partners have come together to address this challenge by sharing space, staff, and services to support the distance learning needs of students who can not afford private Distance Learning support services.
While many Learning Hubs were started to serve a specific school or student population, other existing Childcare Centers have adapted their programs, such as before/aftercare services, into Learning Hubs. Some are located on school campuses, while others are located in community centers. And while most are serving younger elementary students, a few have also opened to support middle school and high school students.
In coordination with various Partners, the County, and the Marin County office of Education, Backbone Team staff are working with Learning Hub organizers to track and share student data. Using this information, Partners can ensure equitable access to Learning Hub services, respond to community and student needs, coordinate with schools, and advocate for additional resources.
We make every effort, through regular communication with MCOE and the Learning Hubs, to keep the data you see on the map below as comprehensive and up-to-date as possible. Please contact us if you know of any Learning Hubs that are not already on the map or if you see any information on this page that appears to be inaccurate.

The blue pins represent Hubs serving only needs-based students (i.e. students that qualify for free or reduced lunch services or that have been referred to a Hub by their school). The purple pins represent Hubs that serve a mix of students from open, fee-based registration to subsidized scholarships to no-cost school-based sites.
