The Martin Luther King, Jr. National Day of Service is an opportunity for each of us to reflect on the principles of equality and selflessness that Dr. King embodied. Nashville 1st Platoon will be doing some seasonal garden prep at the Bellevue Edible Learning Lab. The garden serves as a teaching and learning lab for volunteers, students of Bellevue Middle Prep, and the community! Join us as we help prepare the garden for the current growing season. Some things we may doing include sow and harvest plants, water and weed existing garden rows, prepare garden beds for planting, work in the green house, tend to the chicken flock, or canning/ preserving.

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.
