Deploy With a Team of Veterans and Build a Stronger Community

The Mission Continues 3rd annual mass deployment is headed to Los Angeles in the summer of 2018. A team of veterans from across the country will be selected to participate in the week-long service blitz. Their efforts will be supported by the Los Angeles Service Platoons, community partners and local volunteers.

More information on how to get involved is coming soon.

Volunteer for a Mass Deployment

A select team of veterans from across the country is selected each year to participate in the mass deployment. The application for our 2018 mass deployment is not yet available. Check back soon for more information.

What is A Mass Deployment?

A Mass Deployment mobilizes veterans from across the country alongside local partners and volunteers in a single city over the course of a week-long project. We select cities with a need for revitalization and the potential for sustainable growth, ensuring our efforts and resources have a visible impact within the communities we serve. Our purpose: To seed future operations, leaders and motivate more veterans to embrace new roles of service in their community — while inspiring others to serve.

Our first mass deployment took place in Detroit in 2016. Our second mass deployment took place in Atlanta’s Westside in 2017.

Mass Deployment 2017: Operation Westside Surge

In June of 2017, The Mission Continues deployed more than 70 veteran volunteers to Atlanta’s Westside for a week-long service mission to tackle some of the community’s toughest challenges. The Westside district includes the neighborhoods of Vine City, English Avenue and Castleberry Hill. Using their skills, leadership and experience, our volunteers worked alongside families and community partners to deliver a week of impact across the Westside.

Mass Deployment 2016: Operation Motown Muster

Operation Motown Muster took place from June 23 – 30, 2016 in Detroit, Michigan. Over the course of the week, a team of 72 veterans served alongside local volunteers at four locations across the city: Central High School, Priest Elementary School, the Osborn Neighborhood and Recovery Park. This team concentrated their efforts to help revitalize neighborhoods, parks and schools. Each day, the team deployed and executed a variety of high-impact missions including construction, landscaping, painting, and public arts projects.

Operation Motown Muster’s week of service is complete, but our long-term investment into the city of Detroit has only just begun. The veterans of the local service platoon are already hard at work, maintaining the projects created during the mass deployment, fostering relationships with our local community partners and setting the stage for future projects.
