The Mission Continues is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization whose mission is to challenge post-9/11 veterans to rebuild a sense of purpose through community service. The Mission Continues accomplishes its mission through its Fellowship Program for post-9/11 veterans, which challenges them to do six-month fellowships at local nonprofits in their community addressing a local need and a Service Project Program for veterans and civilians to serve along side one another and make a tangible impact on their community.
The Mission Continues is a rapidly growing organization that has been recognized by the Draper Richards Foundation, New Profit and Manhattan Institute as one of the country’s most socially innovative, non-profit organizations. Through November 2011, it has awarded 196 fellowships to veterans and empowered more than 16,000 volunteers to serve in their communities. Fundraising efforts have grown from raising $27,000 in 2007 to a projected $8M in 2011 revenues.
As the organization grows, The Mission Continues is looking to add team members who can help the organization achieve the scale necessary to reshape the way the nation welcomes home veterans. The organization is fully dedicated to the personal and professional development of every member of the team.
