Guest Spotlight – Get to Know a Champion for Children

Once a month, we here at Consult 4 Kids put a spotlight on an individual who is a champion for youth or youth programs. We feel it is important to recognize and celebrate these individuals because we know that it only takes one person to make a difference in the lives of youth. Consult 4 Kids is doing their part to thank and highlight those people who are doing good work for children.

For the month of July we have chosen to put the spotlight on Jason Hendrix.

Jason Hendrix has been in the Parks & Recreation field for over ten years. Jason started as a Recreation Leader with the City of Colton and had the opportunity to work in summer camps, youth sports, drop in recreation, and after school programming. Jason was then given an opportunity to work with the City of San Bernardino SKAMP Camp Program; there Jason learned how to run a successful program with limited resources in a community in need of quality after school programming. Jason continued his work in the field of Recreation working with the YMCA of the East Valley and now is a full time Community Services Coordinator with the City of Fontana. Jason is currently responsible for five middle school after school program sites, a teen center, mobile recreation, and a youth council titled Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council. Jason is extremely passionate about youth, and works tirelessly to research, plan and implement engaging innovative programming that aims to give youth an avenue to express themselves physically and emotionally. Jason’s programs are extremely successful, and Jason credits that to his staff, “I have been blessed with tremendous staff that are just as passionate about serving youth as I am, our success would not be possible without the efforts of my staff.” Jason is also a Cal Sac Trainer, and has attended numerous Cal-Sac and CPRS trainings.
