Hi. My name is JP and I am a senior in High School. I play basketball at school and enjoy reading in my free time. I started working at a seniors home and then partnered with Bake Back America to donate a empowerment give back art class at my summer job that has been the turning point in my life. I have found myself and my mission by helping others by inspiring and empowering to give back. I look forward to this new direction in my life.
Empowering Seniors mission is to inspire seniors to be able to connect to others by giving back. The program empowers volunteers to create an art curriculum which projects are creative and interactive and the end product they are excited to give to a friend, a family member or someone that works at their home. The sessions are themed to create a positive feeling environment.
