As the Volunteer Engagement Specialist, Jason recruits, trains, and mobilizes volunteers across Canada to impact young lives from coast to coast.
As a high school student Jason came to faith through the ministries of Youth for Christ. He is an alumni of Lifeteams: School of Youth Outreach, and served on staff with the Edmonton and Vancouver chapters for eight years before joining the national team.
Throughout his career, Jason has worked closely with street-entrenched youth, managed drop-in centres, trained and equipped staff and volunteers, and built partnerships with the public sector. Jason’s passionate about building teams, and mobilizing others to make a deep impact in their communities. He’s a big-picture thinker, and is happy to take a step back from frontline ministry for the sake of empowering others to reach more young people.
Jason’s desire is to see the number of volunteers serving across Canada double by 2024, bringing the nation-wide total to 11,700 volunteers.
