I Left My Heart Behind in Midwest CARP

I Left My Heart Behind in Midwest CARP

From October 29th to November 4th, Jinil Fleischman and myself took a tour to four different CARP chapters in the Midwest. Our intention was to see the chapters and campuses firsthand, join activities, meet members and faculty advisors, and provide any support needed.

We started in Columbus, Ohio, and then drove to Indianapolis, Indiana, then to Grand Rapids, Michigan with a brief stop in Benton Harbor, and finally ended in Chicago, Illinois.

The trip was a deep experience. We gained new insights into what CARP is doing really well in the Midwest and how better to support them. We are so proud of each one of these unique chapters and students. Their passion, their love, and their heart all contribute to the movement of CARP.

Riding the Wave

Riding the Wave

The new CARP North Lake team asked themselves one question, “What would we like to experience in CARP?” From there, they set to work on a new program: The Wave. The Wave was founded on activity-based learning to understand the principles of CARP.

It’s a smash hit!

Chapter Leader Spotlight: Marcus Orlando Fuller, Jr.

My name is Marcus Orlando Fuller Jr and I'm a CARP Las Vegas member. I think many people exaggerate when they say that “so and so saved my life”. Still, I think that's the only way to describe the immense and deep impact that CARP has had on me. Over the last two years, I have had countless other experiences with the CARP members, each one showing me time and time again that the culture we have in CARP is one of family and love. Even though I have an older sister and three younger brothers, I believe that once I met CARP, I finally understood what it meant to have a family.

For CARP Las Vegas’s monthly two-day retreat, Staff Member, Jinil Fleischman, had an opportunity to teach the Unification Principle.

“Having experienced giving Unification Principle lectures to new guests and CARP members myself, I really believe that other CARP members can benefit from this kind of experience. I’m excited to see how we as young people can change the world by living Principled lives!“

“I can honestly say this is what CARP does for its members: clarify the division within ourselves and, more importantly, offer, with open arms, solutions to this problem and an understanding that we are all in this together. CARP has created an atmosphere where I’m able to discover more about my purpose and give others this same hope.”
