    www.FrontRowOnCampus.com Award Winning Speaker —Association for the Promotion of Campus Activities: Campus Speaker of the Year, 2012 & 2013 Author —Living College Life In The Front Row Philanthropist —The Front Row Foundation, NPO Jon likes to keep it simple, and is all about his core message: Living College Life In The Front Row™. He helps students to step away from their comfort-zones' and push themselves to pursue what is truly challenging, important, and meaningful. With years of experience keynoting, Jon has developed an effective and modern motivational style that genuinely connects with his audience. Engaging his listeners, igniting their enthusiasm, and challenging their status-quo is Jon's specialty. His mission is to encourage individuals to find and develop their unique talents so that they will make the biggest impact within their campus and community. Jon operates by five core values: 1. Make authentic connections 2. Create your own reality 3. Be open to change 4. Commit fully 5. Contribute to others In 2005, Jon founded The Front Row Foundation, which helps individuals and families who are braving critical health challenges to, "experience life in the front row". The foundation gives those who are in need a front row experience at a concert, sporting event, theatrical performance, or other live event of their choice. To date, the charity has raised over $1,000,000 and had been instrumental in over 60 life-changing experiences. So What's Jon Have to Say? In as few words as possible, this is who I am, what has shaped my thinking, and what I am the most proud of... -I came from a great family and grew up as a military brat; I was born in Sasebo, Japan, and attended eight different schools before graduating in 1993. -In just a few years, I worked myself up from an in-home knife salesman at age 19, to Cutco's youngest North American Sales Promotion Manager. - I co-founded The Front Row Foundation after I raised the initial funds in a 53 mile, double-marathon in 2005. - In 2008 I was married in Siberia to my incredible wife Tatyana, who's a nutritional health coach and yoga instructor. We have a four-year-old son, Tiger. Tiger loves to laugh, watch cartoons, and to play hide & seek. I know a bit of Russian, but Tiger is the bilingual one, and I learn something new from him everyday. -I believe in the power of relationships. Community shapes reality, so I put people first. When I die, I want to be known as someone who cared for others. I am constantly striving to improve myself. -I am committed to being a great friend, leader, mentor, husband and father. -I love to travel and I'm addicted to learning. I believe life is an adventure, and that our greatest ally in it is perspective. -I do what I do because I love to inspire those around me. I believe we should help each other overcome our fears and step up to start living life "in the front row." I am certain this is my calling. Why hire Jon Vroman? Do you need a charismatic storyteller who will keep your audience emotionally charged and on the edge of their seats? Do you need a speaker who can help your audience capture the key ideas they need for their own growth and change? Then your audience will appreciate the gains in insights from Jon's underdog story of moving from the back row of life, to the front row. It's an authentic and engaging story of triumph over challenge that we can all take something away from. Jon is guaranteed to leave your audience begging for more!

            • Local youth taking action! SELECTION

              This short film is the result of collaboration between ARX (Action Research Exchange) Project at SFPIRG (Simon Fraser University Public Interest Research Group) and the SFU School of Communications (particularly, the upper-level course CMNS 425 – “Applied Communication for Social Issues”, in Spring 2010). The purpose of the project is to connect students with non-profit community organizations that have limited resources, but are in need of research, while the assignment gets credit as part of the respective course at university as well. “Check Your Head” was the community organization in this case and their need of a video material that could be used in one of their workshops about youth involvement and climate change coincided with one of the themes to be developed into a communication strategy final project for the course. The aim of this short film is to explore whether or not the youth today are apathetic to get involved and the role media plays in this, through an example of student-organized and supported action for climate and environmental action. Among other initiatives, on December 11, 2009, Windermere Secondary, Sir Winston Churchill and other high school’s students from Vancouver (Canada) organized a zero-waste event called “C3 Climate Change Conference” that attracted over 270 participants, and whose goal was to inform, educate and develop ways to take action against climate change. Dr. Andrew Weaver, major contributor to the Nobel prizewinning UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was one of their guests. The film is structured around the students’ opinion regarding talking to Youth Delegates in Copenhagen (part of the International Climate Conference there), Dr. Weaver’s speech, media discourse and how it affects youth engagement, and whether young people care about climate change. The selection here contains their answers to the last section and the end of the video. Music by Soundprank – “Too quiet – Not Enough Noise (soundprank_s_bitmix)”, Ghost – “Ice and Chilli”, Echoed – “L.O.R.D. 2010 (remastered version), TenaciousC – “From out of Nowhere” and 350 videos are used under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial License.
