A Mission Continues Fellowship involves 20 hours of service per week for 26 weeks at a local nonprofit organization. Fellows are encouraged to choose a nonprofit organization to serve based on their own personal passions.

A service platoon is a team of veterans, active duty service members, guardsmen and reservists that mobilizes together to solve a specific challenge in their community. Each service platoon’s mission is unique to the platoon and the challenges facing its community. Each mission is ongoing and organized around weekly, monthly, or quarterly events. Service platoons collaborate with local nonprofits, civic organizations and businesses to ensure community support and engagement. It’s a win-win for veterans and for the community. As a platoon member, you might spend a Saturday afternoon building houses alongside your fellow veterans. You could be out on the streets at midnight with your team, helping homeless veterans find shelter. You might cut new trails in a state park or spend the weekend camping at a team retreat.
