Find Your Purpose, Change Your Life with Midwest CARP

On December 21-23, the CARP chapters from the Midwest, Grand Rapids, Chicago, and Indianapolis, collaborated to host a winter CARP retreat at Camp KOHOE in Benton Harbor, Michigan. This retreat was a follow up from the Spring Retreat. The theme of the winter event was “Find Your Purpose, Change Your Life” with the focus being on the Three Life Goals.

“The theme was: 'find your purpose, change your life.' I like that. I feel that I should be here, because I didn’t know my purpose. When people explained that it could be love, career, and other things, it allowed me to look inside and find my purpose.” - Cypreiana Carter

On Friday, December 7th, CARP Bay Area held an End-of-Semester Gratitude Celebration to conclude the Fall 2018 Semester with students and their families. It was a wonderful, festive evening together as a community that felt like an extended family.

“What I learned in CARP was that education is important, but not just the education we receive in school. It’s not just the science classes I have to take or the public speaking courses, but the education of heart. And that’s something that CARP has provided me with this whole semester.” - Monica Schlaepfer

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.

“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.”
