The Mission Continues is a national non-profit organization based in St. Louis that engages veterans transitioning out of the military into community service leadership at home. Its fellowship program involves post-911 veterans serving 20 hours a week for six months at a non-profit of their choice while completing a professional development curriculum. Its platoon program has veterans of all generations working together in communities to solve local challenges.
