$50,000 The Mission Continues: 2nd Pittsburgh Service Platoon

PROJECT: Pittsburgh Service Platoonmission continues pgh

PROGRAM: Catalytic Grants $50,000

GRANTEE: The Mission Continues

The Mission Continues was founded on the belief that veterans are an untapped leadership asset for communities, and should play a pivotal role in rebuilding neighborhoods. As a city with one of the largest veteran populations in the country, this is an opportunity to build a veteran-community collaboration model to transform distressed neighborhoods into healthy communities by placing a Mission Continues Platoon with non-profit partners.

Pittsburgh is ripe for the mobilization and organization of veterans around continued service to neighborhoods with the most need. The Mission Continues proposes to launch the second Pittsburgh Service Platoon:

  • Recruit, mobilize and organize a Platoon of 40-60 veterans led by a post-9/11 veteran
  • Plan and execute service missions in our six priority neighborhoods
  • Empower veterans in Pittsburgh to focus their talents and leadership on addressing community needs
