Recommendation from taylor bongard

  1. 1. RecommendationTo Whom It May Concern,My name is Taylor Bongard, and I had the privilege and honor of working with Jason Wiese for threemonths over the summer of 2011. We were working for an organization called YouthWorks whospecializes in summer mission trips for high school and middle school students. Jason was the sitedirector over the Marvell, Arkansas site and I was his supervisor as his area director. I spent about amonth of the summer with Jason on his site and spent the other months working along side him via phonecommunication.As a site director, Jason’s responsibilities included: managing 4 college-age staff, managing a $20,000budget, overseeing programming for 100+ high school students for 10 weeks of mission trips, evaluatingand developing himself and his team, managing and leading 10-15 adult leaders each week, and manymore. The list goes on for what a site director does on a site. It is a very big role to take on, and I thinkJason did a fantastic job of filling in the needs of his role. He had a great big-picture perspective on whatthe mission was and how he played a vital role in that mission. He was able to convey to his team whythey were there and what the heart was around the mission. Jason was incredible with the students andadult leaders that came on the trips. He did a great job of keeping healthy, consistent communication withthe participants and went above and beyond leading his adult leaders, helping them to empower theirstudents. He remained calm and composed during times of conflict and worked hard to be there for histeam and the participants.Some of Jason’s biggest strengths include: big-picture perspective on tasks/mission, driven values, lovingothers, personal growth and development, communication, positivity, and consistency.Jason was a complete joy to work with and I would be honored to get to spend more time with him in thefuture. He has a very bright attitude and stature that makes you long for more time with him. He has avery big heart for people and I know that whatever he does in the future, he will be a blessing to thepeople around him.Taylor BongardFormer YouthWorks Supervisor952-457-5942taylorbongard@gmail.com
