‘The Mission Continues’ National Initiative
Community and National Service
The Mission Continues Fellowship Program, a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, challenges post-9/11 veterans to continue to serve their country and communities after their military service ends. We conducted a study involving nearly 500 veterans in more than 400 nonprofit organizations in 42 states from 2010 through 2012. The aim of our initiative, in collaboration with The Mission Continues, was to assess the perceived personal, social and family impacts of participating in the organization’s Fellowship Program.
