Report for duty
in your Community
Join the Movement

Communities across the country are growing stronger because veterans are finding ways to apply their skills and leadership at home. The Mission Continues offers the opportunity for veterans and civilians to give back to their community, and become stronger citizens. It’s a collective effort that empowers veterans to serve in new ways, solve tough challenges and mobilize communities to serve alongside them.

Whether you have one day to give, or you are looking for a long-term role of service, there is an opportunity for you to report for duty in your community.

Apply for a Fellowship
Be a Leader in Your Community

Through the Mission Continues’ Fellowship Program, selected veterans volunteer part-time for six months at the community organization of their choice. In return, Fellows receive a living stipend, complete a leadership development curriculum and develop new skills and networks. The Fellowship Program is ideal for veterans looking to start a new career, gain practical work experience while attending school or for a new way to serve at home.

Serve With a Platoon
Serve on a Team in Your Community

Service platoons are teams of veterans, active duty service members, guardsmen and reservists that mobilize together to solve a specific challenge in their community. Through weekly, monthly and quarterly events, service platoons allow members to volunteer as often as their schedules allow. Platoons are currently serving and forming in cities across the country.

Volunteer for a
Service Mission
Join With Others for a Day of Service

There is no better way to bring a community together than by enabling them to serve alongside one another. Service missions are single or multi-day projects that allow veterans and civilians to serve together. Volunteers at a service mission may build a playground in an under-resourced community, plant a community garden or renovate a school that serves at-risk youth.
