Volunteer With Baltimore Platoon

Platoon Summary

Our TMC Baltimore Platoon is a lively group of veteran and non-veteran volunteers who care deeply about using our gifts to better people and communities. Formed in 2015, our primary objective is to support organizations focusing on neighborhood revitalization, community food apartheid issues, and health and wellness for community residents. We bring that heart of service to West and South Baltimore by helping amazing organizations Intersection of Change, City of Refuge, and Filbert Street Garden achieve their missions. We have had the privilege of working alongside the fantastic leaders of these organizations by doing a wide range of service projects that included building a meditative garden on a farm, renovation work to increase resident learning opportunities, planting flowers to beautify spaces, restoring garden beds so community members can grow fresh food, picking up trash in frequently used lots so youth could feel safe, as well as provide growth opportunities for young leaders through our specialized team bonding events. While partnering with purpose-driven organizations is fulfilling, the most gratifying part of our Baltimore Platoon is its impact on our Veteran volunteers and community. It feels great to be a member of a team. As a Veteran, you can come and feel you belong, have fun, and serve others. We look forward to you joining our team!

Who We Are

The Mission Continues is a national non-profit that empowers veterans to continue serving in our nation’s under-resourced communities, giving veterans the opportunity to keep serving even after the uniform comes off, right here at home. Our programs deploy veterans and volunteers to work alongside nonprofit partners and community leaders to improve educational resources, tackle food insecurity, foster neighborhood identity, and more.  

Who should volunteer?

Our service projects are for all veterans with a desire to continue their service and for all non-veterans that want to be part of a nationwide movement to transform communities. Please note, age and accessibility accommodations can be made at any project. There is room for everyone to make an impact.

What is a Service Platoon? 

Service Platoons are your opportunity to engage and connect with veterans and community members while generating community impact in a real and tangible way. Led by veteran volunteer platoon leaders, each platoon works with dedicated community partners and volunteers to provide the manpower and support that they need to help them do their work more effectively. 

We currently have service platoons in more than 40+ cities across the country that are having events at least once a month. Everyone is invited to serve, regardless of veteran status: a service platoon is for you if you have a passion for service.
