Guest presenter, Jason LeVasseur presented a customized presentation to the UF campus “Making the ‘Connect’ Work” that focused on the importance and ease of professional and social networking.
LeVasseur is a leadership speaker, workshop facilitator, summer camp program director, award-winning music performer, the creator and creative director of The Rock Star Project® – a collection of original programs that combine Jason’s knowledge in both teaching and music in his unique leadership framework.
Jason graduated with a double major in education and philosophy from Wake Forest University, with plans to become a high school English teacher, a three season athletic coach and residential summer camp counselor. However, while student teaching in the spring of his senior year he began recording his first music CD with his campus rock band. Upon the album’s release his band gained instant regional recognition. 25 years, 13 CDs, and 18 performance awards later – Jason is still “taking off a year”. However, this successful touring life did not keep Jason from his teaching. He has continued his work in leadership education over the years as a keynote speaker, workshop facilitator, summer camp counselor, wilderness guide, and is the current Program Director for the same residential summer camp he attended as a camper.
During the academic year Jason travels and works with student leaders across the country, helping them realize their influential role on campus and in their community. His team-building expertise and ability to captivate a crowd guide all of his keynotes and workshops, skillfully teaching students proven tools to strengthen their own clubs and organizations. His diverse experience in working with over 2,500 campuses has given Jason a broad perspective on what is important for student leaders to succeed in school
