What happens next after being a JRP graduate?

Aside from putting to good use their knowledge and skills, they also get the chance to make a difference in the lives of others as they become part of John Robert Powers (JRP) Alumni community.

For its first get-together dubbed as “The Red Mark Project,” the JRP Alumni Community partnered with Virlanie Foundation for a day of fun and learning last September 22 at the Marco Polo Care Center (MPCC). MPCC is one of Virlanie Foundation’s homes for babies and young children.

Not only did the children beneficiaries enjoy their meal, they also received lessons on proper table manners.

Volunteers – composed of JRP 2018 graduates and JRP staff and facilitators – enjoyed playing games with the children of MPCC. The youngsters also engaged in interactive learning sessions on how to carry themselves with confidence, as well as the basic rules of proper etiquette.

At the same event, Virlanie Foundation and JRP marked the beginning of their long-term partnership with a ceremonial contract signing. Catch a glimpse of The Red Mark Project’s highlights here.

Virlanie Foundation, through its various support programs, cares for children in need of special protection– those who are among the poor, abandoned, abused, exploited, neglected, and orphaned.

The Red Mark Project is the first-ever outreach event of the John Robert Powers Alumni Community. This serves as an avenue for JRP alumni to apply their skills, values, and competencies to make an impact on society. Its purpose is to leave a Powers mark, one community at a time.
