Jason 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, 3-season athletic coach, and residential summer camp counselor. While student-teaching in the spring of his senior year he began recording his first CD with his campus rock band. Upon the album’s release, his band gained instant regional recognition so he decided to postpone the classroom teaching for a year.
25 years, 13 CDs, and 19 performance awards later – Jason is still “taking a year off”. 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 companies, associations, schools, colleges, camps, and student leaders across the country – helping them realize their influential role at work, on campus, and in their community.
What’s new from 2020? In February of 2020 he received the “NACA Legend Award” for his years of service to the National Association for Campus Activities. Then, a month later Jason created the online group called “The Virtual Event Ideas Community” which now serves as a resource to over 10,000 schools, camps, teachers, students, and higher education professionals. He has quickly become one of the most skilled virtual presenters in the industry, facilitating over 250 events between March and December of 2020. Then, In January of 2021 he received the “Virtual Artist of The Year” award from APCA – The Association for the Promotion of Campus Activities.
His team-building expertise and ability to captivate a crowd guide all of his keynotes and workshops, skillfully teaching his audience tools to strengthen their own relationships. His diverse experience in working with over 2,500 campuses and businesses has given Jason a broad perspective on what is important for students, teams and team leaders to succeed.
