Volunteer With Oahu Platoon

Platoon Summary

The O’ahu Platoon focuses its efforts confronting chronic conditions of homelessness, food insecurity and other intersections of inequity gaps in the communities of Southeast O’ahu – zip code 96786, while continuing to cultivate and build relationships with local military and veteran community (https://www.unitedstateszipcodes.org/96786/). We practice kokua in our interactions with other nonprofits and offer our malama in our joint efforts to preserve indigenous culture and address inequities. An ongoing operation has shifted to form new partnerships beginning with Wahiawa Middle School at its community farm. In addition, the service platoon continues to commit to connect youth and families with creating opportunities in environmental stewardship such as adopting a portion of Blaisdell Park Pearl Harbor Historic Trail, assisting in the WWII encampment excavation at Honouliuli National Monument, and overgrowth clearing at Heritage Park. The work promises to be challenging, but also incredibly rewarding. We hope to see you soon. Mahalo Nui Loa.

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.
