Jason Thomas

Executive Director


Jason is the Executive Director at 3 Seeds Mentoring Group. He is the oldest of three children and is also a member of the Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc. and the 100 Black Men of Chicago. He has an affinity for young people, and through his life’s work, has learned that without purpose or direction, young people will continue to be stuck in survival mode willing to do anything for the pursuit of monetary gain. He believes that we all have a responsibility as educated professionals to give back in whatever capacity we are blessed with: be it time, treasure, or talent.

He is the immediate past Director of the TRiO Talent Search program at Prairie State College where he worked for the past 5 years with 500+ first generation/low income students from 11 schools in the Chicago Heights community. As the executive director of 3 Seeds Mentoring Group, he has shifted his focus to working with additional communities here in the south suburbs with another TRiO Talent Search Program that will begin in the fall of 2016 at Hillcrest High School.
