Houston's 3rd Service Platoon is led by Marine veteran LaShonda Johnson, and we have partnered with KIPP (Knowledge is Power Program) in efforts to improve the whole child at KIPP schools throughout Houston.

KIPP's mission is to develop in under-served students the academic skills, intellectual habits, and qualities of character necessary to succeed at all levels of pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, college, and the competitive world beyond (KIPP Houston Public Schools, n.d.).

This year The Mission Continues will focus on KIPP North and KIPP Northeast by conducting service projects to promote school pride and retention by upgrading learning spaces and aesthetically improving their buildings. So get Kippnotized and join us as we help make improvements to these deserving schools.
