Marin College Access Network (MarinCAN)
Marin College Access Network (MarinCAN) believes all young people in Marin County should have the academic, personal and financial resources to be successful in their educational goals through college graduation. MarinCAN fosters a learning community where member nonprofit-organizations and schools can work collaboratively to increase the number of low-income and students of color who attend college.
MarinCAN is a membership network established in 2010 by the Marin Community Foundation to support its Educational Strategic Initiative. Network members are community-based organizations and local colleges, serving students at eleven public middle and high schools in targeted geographical regions. The 17 MarinCAN members collectively serve nearly 1000 students in San Rafael, Novato, Marin City and West Marin.
