On June 22th, The Mission Continues Brooklyn Platoon is heading out to Brownsville Brooklyn once again for an impactful day of service to finish what we started last summer!
We have been consistently deploying to Brownsville to build a stronger more connected community as Brownsville residents intend to change the negative narrative around Brownsville being "the worst neighborhood for children" into "Brownsville, a Community of Resilience."
So far we have painted 2 full basketball courts and 3 half basketball courts in purple and white.
This time, we are going to finish up revitalizing Howard Playground for children by completing the basketball court redesign that the youth council of Brooklyn Public Library created. Also, we will paint park benches and install new basketball nets. This project will be the final part of rebuilding Howard Playground.
Hope to see you there!

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.
