Community Activism with Jahmeer Reynolds of the Marin County Cooperative Team

Jahmeer Reynolds is a community activist, the Executive Director of the Marin County Cooperation Team (“MCCT”), and the architect of the Marin City Public Safety Initiative (“MCPSI”), Frederick Leon Marcus Youth Academy (“YA”), and School to Life Mentor Project (“STL”).

MCCT provides Marin County’s most vulnerable residents with comprehensive support services which address both critical and long-term needs. 

The MCPSI is an initiative about re-imagining policing and public safety, as summarized in Jahmeer’s TedTalk: “Reimagining Policing for the Good of All”

The YA establishes a youth-led neighborhood safety team focusing on first aid, financial literacy, public speaking, civic engagement, and social activism.

The STL is designed to interrupt the special education to prison pipeline, through the provision of skilled, trained mentors who support students with special education needs. 

For this work, the Center for Volunteer and Nonprofit Leadership selected Jahmeer for their “Excellence in Innovation” award.
