Find Your Purpose, Change Your Life with Midwest CARP

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

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.
