A Mission Continues Fellowship involves 20 hours of service per week for 26 weeks at a local nonprofit organization and provides a cost of living stipend. Fellows are encouraged to choose a nonprofit organization to serve based on their own personal passions.
Current and Alumni Fellows have worked at organizations addressing issues ranging from disaster preparedness to education for low-income youth to training service dogs for wounded veterans. These host organizations include Habitat for Humanity, American Red Cross, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, and many more. To date, more than 600 unique nonprofit and community organizations have hosted a Mission Continues Fellow.
Every Mission Continues Fellow applies to the program for unique reasons. Additional benefits include:
- Connection with other veterans in your community and across the nation by:
- Attending the Fellowship Orientation at the beginning of your six months of service
- Planning and attending service projects, bringing veterans and civilians together to benefit your community
- Speaking on behalf of your host organization and The Mission Continues at career fairs, on veterans panels, or through specific media opportunities
- Development of professional skills and network
- Translation of military-based skills to civilian workforce
- A cost-of-living stipend provided by The Mission Continues
