Learn firsthand about the awareness campaign to help end youth homelessness in Canada in this special keynote where Joe shares his history of homelessness, his transformation and redemption, and then his promise to pay it forward.
Joe’s unique style of inspiration combined with his legendary dark humour will have you shed a tear while making you laugh ‘til it hurts. As you walk with Joe through the tough streets of East Vancouver in the 1980’s you will experience the depths and degradation of a former homeless derelict, to the heights and triumph of a successful entrepreneur and philanthropist who has taken on the task of pushing a shopping cart across Canada to raise awareness to help end youth homelessness.
You will laugh, possibly cry, but never look at homelessness the same.
Participants will leave with:
The possibility that lives inside each human being vs. the “probability”
A deep feeling of inspiration
A connection to a cause and solution
A call to action
