DAVID DUROCHER BIO
Dave Durocher was arrested for the first time at the age of thirteen. By the time he was 38, he had been to
prison four times for a total of fifteen years. Dave was arrested yet again, and this time he was facing a
twenty-two year prison sentence. In what the Judge called “the chance of a lifetime” he afforded Dave the
opportunity to go to Delancey Street instead of prison but reminded Dave in no uncertain terms that if he
didn’t complete his commitment at Delancey Street he would be spending the rest of his life in prison.
Not only did Dave complete his initial two year commitment, he stayed for a total of eight years and became the Executive Director of Delancey’s Los Angeles facility for five of those years, overseeing two hundred and fifty residents and a multitude of vocational training school businesses that funded the operation and provided the training ground for residents to learn how to live a constructive and meaningful life. Dave oversaw a 300% increase in revenue during his tenure over the facility.
Dave is tenacious, interpersonally skilled, a good manager and an inspiring and powerful public speaker. He
had helped countless others regain their dignity and their lives before he moved on to enjoy his own success as the person he had become.
Dave helped launch The Other Side Academy in 2015 and is currently the Executive Director in Salt Lake City. The Other Side Academy is a two-year Life Skills Academy similar to Delancey Street, where men and women can come to learn about honesty, accountability, integrity, hard work and self-respect. Under Dave’s management, The Other Side Academy has grown to over $11 million in revenues and donations for 2018 and has overseen the growth of the student population to over 90 students.
