Join Oakland 1st Service Platoon for the national day of service in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. In collaboration with Keep Oakland Beautiful and We Lead Ours, we will be working to revitalize Arroyo Viejo Park. Among other tasks, we will be spreading fresh mulch, refurbishing a storage shed, and restoring the creek bed in the park.
What To Wear :
Close-toe shoes, clothes you don't mind getting dirty, and your blue Mission Continues shirt!
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.
