Mount Tamalpais College wins the Heart of Marin Award

By Mount Tamalpais College | February 9, 2023

We’re thrilled to announce that Mount Tamalpais College has received the Heart of Marin Award for Achievement in Nonprofit Excellence. This annual award is presented by the Center for Volunteer & Nonprofit Leadership (CVNL) to an organization that demonstrates exemplary service to its constituents. We were honored to attend the 30th annual awards ceremony on January 12, 2023, alongside other leaders providing civic leadership in Marin. 

“This was the first time we’ve been back in person for Heart of Marin since the pandemic began,” said Linda Jacobs, CEO at CVNL. “The buzz in the room was palatable. It is clear we have all been eager to come back together again and celebrate the good happening in our Marin communities.”Awards were distributed in eight categories that recognized select volunteers, nonprofits, and organizations working in Marin. We were humbled to be in the company of such dedicated, compassionate, determined individuals, including Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Rev. Dr. Jane Adams Spahr, who has tirelessly worked on justice issues in the LGBTQ+ community, and five inspirational young people whose service was recognized by the Youth Volunteer of the Year Award. The event and honorees were recently highlighted in the Marin Independent Journal 


Pleased to be mentioned in this NYT Opinion piece about Gov. Newsom's plans for San Quentin. We hope the increased attention on programs at SQ amplifies the voices and perspectives of MTC students and alumni.

If you missed the movie and panel at the SF Public Library, catch up on a great conversation with MTC alumni here:

The FCC will require phone companies serving prisons, jails and detention facilities across the U.S. to provide video communication services for deaf and hard of hearing prisoners.
