LEMUEL "LIFE" LAROCHE
Speaker. Author. Community Strategist.
LIFE IS A DYNAMIC LEADER WHO ASSISTS COMMUNITIES AND ORGANIZATIONS IN DEVELOPING INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS TO THE MOST PRESSING SOCIAL ISSUES.
For Lemuel "Life" LaRoche, there's only one path. We can rebuild ourselves and our communities, he believes. The strength to do so, LaRoche says, is already inside us.
Empowerment from within is the core principle of LaRoche's community work and therapy. In 20 years of professional experience as a community organizer, educator, public speaker, and adolescent counselor, LaRoche challenges the people he works with to discover that they already possess the tools required to improve themselves and their neighborhoods.
What Audiences Have to Say
Life has a way of utterly captivating an audience. When he speaks, the room is intense with listening thought, and, when he finishes, a standing ovation is common. His poetry is intelligent and thought provoking.

Lemuel is doing a remarkable work for young people in the United States through the game of chess. What he started in Athens inspires myself and many others to step forward and improve our communities. Keep doing the work, Lem.
Life's warmth, sincerity, and poetic style are all equally captivating as he draws young and old alike into careful consideration of the many pressing issues of our age.
