Program Overview:

The Mission Continues is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that serves as a framework for United States military veterans to perform community service work toward issues ranging from disaster preparedness to education for low-income youth to training of service dogs for wounded veterans. Founded in 2007 by Rhodes Scholar and former Navy SEAL Eric Greitens, The Mission Continues offers post-9/11 veterans six month community service fellowships to assist them in finding the same purpose they found in the military while they return to civilian life. The Mission Continues was founded in 2007 after CEO Eric Greitens returned home from service in Iraq as a Navy SEAL. Upon his return, Eric visited with wounded Marines at Bethesda Naval Hospital in Maryland. Without exception, each Marine expressed an unwavering desire to continue serving his/her country, even if he/she could no longer do so in the military. Inspired, Eric used his own combat pay and asked two friends to pitch in their military disability checks to found The Mission Continues. A Mission Continues has special Fellowships with locally based non-profits serving unmet needs. Fellowship involves 20 hours of service per week for 26 weeks at a local nonprofit organization. Fellows are encouraged to choose a nonprofit organization to serve based on their own personal passions. Host organizations include Habitat for Humanity, American Red Cross, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, and Mothers Against Drunk Driving, plus hundreds of others across the United States.
