About The Mission Continues:
The Mission Continues is a national nonprofit organization that empowers U.S. military veterans, who have served since the events of 9/11, to successfully transition to post-military careers by reconnecting to their communities and their sense of purpose through volunteerism. The Mission Continues provides the tools, the direction and resources, while the veterans deploy their experience, their skills, and their desire to serve against their neighborhoods' most pressing needs. Through service to their community, veterans find new missions and are able to rebuild the sense of purpose, accomplishment and camaraderie they found in the military. All of which leads to more successful adjustment to civilian life.
Founded in 2007 by retired Navy SEAL and TIME 100 2013 honoree Eric Greitens, The Mission Continues has helped nearly 700 post-9/11 veterans focus their talents and energy to tackle challenges facing us right here at home. Through a unique model that provides reciprocal benefit for the veteran and the local community—six-month service fellowships—veterans volunteer to help others and, through their service, build new skills that help them launch their civilian career.
