Agents of Change Youth Session

The opportunities to make a difference are endless - you’ve heard that before. As a young person living in our community, we bet you have asked yourself, ‘how can I change the world, I’m only one person?’ At the Agents of Change Youth session, you will connect with hundreds of other young people to learn how you can create a better world for those around you through simple acts of generosity!

Join David Roche, an inspirational humorist and pioneer of disability culture, for a hilarious session about acceptance and love that will leave you smiling for days! Thanks to the generosity of the Andrew D. Beckerman Fund at Victoria Foundation, each guest will also walk away with a $100 Canada Helps gift card to get into community and practice philanthropy!

About David Roche

David's face distinguishes him from all other presenters and speakers. What really makes David unique, however, is his remarkable spirit, warmth, wit and authenticity.

David has transformed the challenges and gifts of living with a facial difference into a compelling message that uplifts and delights audiences around the world. The story of his heroic journey from shame to strength has inspired standing ovations from the White House and Kennedy Center to Olympics Arts Festivals, from New Zealand to Moscow, London to Sydney, and across Canada and the USA.
