Yubbie Foundation

The founder and Executive Director Joe Wojcik breathed life into the Foundation through his passion to make a difference. He is a powerful motivational speaker, delivering messages of hope and possibility. He shares profound insights, perspectives and education through seminars and keynote speaking engagements. A victim of bullying in his youth, Joe’s life journey drew him into substance abuse as a young man. A debilitating automobile accident in his early thirties became a life-altering experience. Joe persevered through a seventeen year healing process that included a physical, psychological and spiritual transformation. Drawing upon his experiences, Joe today addresses bullying and its long-term effects, the power of nurturing in parenthood, overcoming adversity, and fulfilling purpose.
