Target demographics: A Mission Continues Fellow is a post-9/11 veteran who has accepted the challenge to continue their service to our country by serving their community.

Direct beneficiaries per year: Fellows have served at more than 500 nonprofits, including the Boys and Girls Club, Equest Therapeutic Horsemanship, Growing Washington and The Humane Society,

Geographic areas served: We serve veterans nationwide.

Programs: Through the Fellowship Program, post-9/11 veterans continue serving through six-month community service fellowships. For 26 weeks, Mission Continues Fellows volunteer for 20 hours a week at a nonprofit organization of their choice. They also complete a curriculum designed to propel them into their next phase of life, whether it’s meaningful employment or higher education. Fellows receive a living stipend while serving.

Mission Continues Service Platoons are teams of 30 to 45 veterans, of all generations, and active duty, guard and reservist service members. Platoons work together on the local level to tackle a specific mission in the community. In Washington, D.C., a platoon strives to reduce hunger among inner-city youth. In Phoenix, a platoon aims to eradicate veteran homelessness. Twenty-five platoons are launching across the country in 2014, solving problems here at home.

Mission:
The Mission Continues engages veterans facing the challenge of adjusting to life at home to find new missions. We redeploy veterans in their communities so the legacy of this generation will be one of action and service. The Mission Continues focuses veterans’ spirit of service and harnesses the skills they learned in the military through two action-orientated programs: the Fellowship Program and the Service Platoon Program.
Results:
The Mission Continues has awarded 840 fellowships to post-9/11 veterans across 48 states. These veterans have contributed more than $7 million worth of services.

91% of Fellows said they increased their professional network through the experience, and 100% of Fellows believe they are pursuing a meaningful new mission.
