Can volunteering help personal growth? Is it possible that in investing in our communities, we can acquire benefits beyond those that we provide?

Jean-Marie Lapointe is convinced we can. This tremendously talented and humble public speaker has delivered his presentation “The Joy of Volunteering” to educational institutions as well as various organizations and companies.

Jean-Marie became involved in volunteering after a significant life event. Over time, his many acts, especially his caring for dying people, have crucially influenced his personal development and his quest for balance.

During his presentation, Jean-Marie shows how the gift of self was a launching point helping him discover his full potential and become a better version of himself. He shares moments and meetings that have had a profound impact on his life. Through his anecdotes, he speaks of the personal fulfilment he draws from his continual involvement in volunteering.

His acts are always marked with passion, humour, feeling and inspiration.

Jean-Marie Lapointe warmly invites you to his presentation and to interact with him on a topic dear to his heart.
