More than two million Americans were deployed to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and tens of thousands of them have subsequently been wounded in action during their service overseas. But despite the challenges wounded veterans face, many of them return home still fueled by a yearning to serve their country and their communities. The Mission Continues offers wounded and disabled post-9/11 veterans an opportunity to channel their skills and desire to serve into volunteer work, providing them with a renewed sense of purpose, a chance at new employment opportunities, and in some cases, a temporary income. As part of National Volunteer Week (April 1016), The Mission Continues will organize 50 service projects across the country, encouraging veterans and civilians to serve in their communities.
The Mission Continues fellowship program helps soldiers reorient their abilities and talents for the benefit of local nonprofits. Via 14- to 28-week paid service opportunities, The Mission Continues fellows can both fulfill their drive to help others and translate their military-trained leadership skills and work ethic into civilian work, improving their communities as well as their chances for future success. Each fellowship is performed in honor of a fallen American serviceperson, whom may be selected by the fellow or by the Travis Manion Foundation.
Join G-Team and donate $12 to help The Mission Continues channel wounded veterans' continued desire to serve into vital community-service opportunities. If G-Team members raise $10,000, one service member will receive a 14- to 28-week fellowship. Any additional funds raised will contribute to additional fellowships for soldiers. Those who decide not to join this G-Team campaign can still make a difference by setting up a project for National Volunteer Week.
