After extensive planning with Team Rubicon, I am proud to offer a one of kind support event. Come help archaeologist Dr. Jonathan Burns, from Juniata College, identify pieces of the past in a metal detection and limited excavation survey at the Colonial-era Fort Ligonier in Ligonier, PA.

Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
