Learning can happen anytime and anywhere. Although this school year has been tough for many due to COVID-19, there are still opportunities for our children to engage with one another, knowledgeable adults and the outside world.

Brown Mamas is trying it’s best to galvanize some of the resources our community has available with it’s Learning Cooperative.
