Digital Media Manager at national charity focused on education. Online youth engagement expert. Founder of Txtocracy.com and co-founder of Roo.io
I have extensive experience in working with youth and in developing projects and programs to engage with young people.
Got a great overview on the topics we dicussed. Jason was well prepared and made the call very valuable to me. He also offered a follow up email with his ideas and input as well as helpfull contacts for my cause. What a great bonus!
I placed Jason on temporary assignments starting in 2006. I always received positive feedback on his performance. He was very reliable and his quality of work was excellent. He represented Dean Group well on all assignments.
Jason's motivation to achieve never ceased to amaze me. He was involved in a multitude of activities during his undergrad degree, and still managed to fund-raise for his journey to Antarctica, maintain a great GPA, and network with many people. It's hard not to like Jason!
Jason is truly an outstanding young man with a breadth and depth of skills not often encountered in the same person. I worked directly with Jason as the Director of Pathways to Education in Kitchener and was profoundly impressed by his ability to offer a strong vision for a new component of our program. Not satisfied by doing only what needed to be done, Jason galvanized others in his vision, built a strong team and demonstrated his strong capacity to accomplish what he sets out to do.
I am particularly impressed by Jason's ability to build strong and meaningful relationships. He went above and beyond in finding opportunities for the young men and women he supported.
I would whole-heartedly endorse Jason as someone who is a leading nonprofit leader. In particular, his capacity at marrying his technology skills along with his understanding of the complexities of the sector, and his entrepreneurial spirit make him a truly gifted human being.
Jason was very personable and had a lot of whacky ideas, that occaisionally, surprisingly worked out.
Not only did I attend Wilfrid Laurier University with Jason, but I had the pleasure of knowing him during my time at Markham District High School.
He has always been a mentor to me, and has helped guide me in my educational and professional career. You would be hard pressed to find someone more caring and willing to share themselves with others than Jason. I truly believe that he is the type of person that can make a difference in the world.
Jason Shim has strategic understanding and skill at the intersection of community, youth, and technology. His work at Mosaic Counselling and Family Services, and for Pathways to Education Kitchener, has been innovative and full of impact. We are fans!
Jason did a brilliant job in helping our agency to develop best practices around digital and social media initiatives. We were fortunate to be on the receiving end of Jason's generous ways and personable and motivational attitude, not to mention his excellent skill set.
Jason can be relied on to get the job done on time and with precision. He is able to manage multiple responsibilities with ease and always produces final products and pieces that are exceptionally well done.
I have had the pleasure of having Jason Shim as my Program Coordinator at The Foundation for Teaching Economics, in both of my programs. He was a very good support and program coordinator. In order to achieve the highest performance off all of us, all the students attending the programs and our deepest respect, he demonstrated outstanding leadership, responsibility, confidence and proved he is someone in whom we could trust.
The The Foundation for Teaching Economics Programs are for Junior and Senior students interested in learning Economics and developing a sense of Leadership. Students with those interest may not be very easy to nevertheless Jason did a great work, and I may also speak in name of my former program partners.
Jason is a gifted communicator with a super-charged passion for whatever he is doing. He was able to affect great change with the students we oversaw, simply by being starkly himself. He is curious, optimistic, and genuinely open-minded. He has a capacity to befriend anyone, from a place of sincerity, key in to their innermost goals, and help map the road to their accomplishment. He is well suited to work with youth in gifted, mainstream or learning disabled populations. He is a pleasure to work with as a colleague.
