Mission Statement

The Mission Continues empowers veterans who are adjusting to life at home to find purpose through community impact. We deploy veterans on new missions in their communities, so that their actions will inspire future generations to serve.

Description

What We Do

The Mission Continues Fellowship: A Mission Continues Fellowship involves 20 hours of service per week for 26 weeks at a local nonprofit organization. Fellows are encouraged to choose a nonprofit organization to serve based on their own personal passions. Before beginning the fellowship, Fellows attend a three-day Fellowship Orientation, joining other post-9/11 veterans from their Fellowship Class for a weekend of training, service and camaraderie. Upon returning home from orientation, Fellows officially begin their fellowships at their host organizations.

The Mission Continues Service Platoon: Each service platoon’s mission is unique to the platoon and the challenges facing its community. Each mission is ongoing and organized around weekly, monthly, or quarterly events. Service platoons collaborate with local nonprofits, civic organizations and businesses to ensure community support and engagement. It’s a win-win for veterans and for the community. If you have served in the military or are currently serving (active duty, Guard, or Reserve), you are eligible to join a platoon. As a platoon member, you might spend a Saturday afternoon building houses alongside your fellow veterans.

Would you recommend The Mission Continues Headquarters?

by Matthew F. (June 10, 2011)
Last year, I worked with The Mission Continues(TMC) for the funding of a 9/11 National Day of Service project. Thanks to support from TMC by grant and guidance (PR, volunteer recruitment, etc.) our project was a great success! Their professionalism and programs are second to none. I have kept in regular contact with TMC since September and highly recommend working with the organization no matter what the role may be: Volunteer, Project Leader, Outreach or Fellow. It's not a charity. It's a challenge.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
