Volunteers from our New York Service Platoon on September 11, 2016.
Our 2016 Annual Report puts a spotlight on the veterans, supporters, and partners who answered the call to “report for duty” in their community this past year. More than 300 Mission Continues Fellows and thousands of volunteers at more than 700 service projects contributed nearly 200,000 hours of community service nationwide.
Their collective impact was made possible by a community of supporters ranging from the Fortune 500 to grassroots fundraisers. Their support created new opportunities for our team to advance a brand new program and launch a new summit to support women veterans.
For our staff, 2016 was a year of growth and innovation. City Impact Managers set up shop in new metro areas including Hampton Roads, Denver, Pittsburgh and Seattle. We also expanded our research and evaluation and learning and development teams. These investments in staff are already paying major dividends in advancing our operations and programs.
With veterans at the heart of community impact, we’re building upon our successes from 2016 and taking names in 2017. Join us in this effort and help us empower more veterans to find new missions here at home.
Report for duty in your community with The Mission Continues. Volunteer with a Service Platoon at an upcoming service event near you or apply for a fellowship. You can learn more about our programs on our website and stay updated on the latest news and announcements on Facebook and Twitter.
