Kicking Off the New School Year with Momentum!

Kicking Off the New School Year with Momentum!

To prepare for another semester of standing for the Principled Perspective on campuses, student leaders from around the country were invited to join “Momentum: Student Leader Training” retreat hosted by the National Collegiate Association for the Research of Principles (CARP).

This year, two Momentum retreats took place back-to-back on the East Coast (from August 4 to August 7 in Barrytown, NY) and the West Coast (from August 9 to August 11 in Los Angeles, CA). By providing two locations with different dates, we served over 100 participants with an experience that empowered leaders to feel confident and prepared for the semester. 

“This whole experience was amazing and it definitely created more momentum in preparation for the upcoming semester. I felt extremely supported through the process of creating a vision and learning about the curriculum” - Jinka Kawasaki, Sophomore, Cypress College

Chapter Leader Spotlight: Samuel Tamura

My name is Samuel Tamura. I am a first year student studying Physiology at the University of California, Davis (UC Davis).

CARP has brought me an immense joy and conviction to work hard with my life of faith and with my education, and I want to share the organization and truth that drives me every day. Knowing that I am influencing my fellow CARP members to think deeper within themselves and about these topics continues to excite my conviction to go forward with my efforts.

There is no denying the experience of heart that was shared between all the brothers and sisters who joined this workshop. It was clear that the future of everyone remains as closely connected to CARP as possible, a place that has become home for all.

“Unification Thought’s point of view on the Divine Principle gave me insight about my pursuit on education… things make a lot more sense to put God in it.” - Denzel

“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.”
