Last year, in Pittsburgh, we piloted a #HerMission, women's service project. We had over 50 women come out and unite in service together. Following that project, four of the female veterans who attended were inspired to apply and serve as Fellows with The Mission Continues; the first female fellows we have had to date in Pittsburgh! Another one of last year's attendees has recently become Pittsburgh’s first female Platoon Leader!
With such great success stories of empowerment coming out of last year's project, we have decided to go for round two! This time, our sister city platoons throughout the Northeast region will also be coming together on March 24th and hosting #HerMission projects of their own!
Join us in transforming classroom and office space in the South Hills, in support of the refugee support programming offered by Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council and South Hills Interfaith Movement; the focus of Pittsburgh 3rd Platoon's operation.
This will be a child friendly event and open to all abilities.
What To Wear :
Blue TMC shirts (we will have some on site for our new members!) and closed toe shoes.
What To Bring :
Your desire to serve!
There is free street parking and a small, free, parking lot on site
Inclement Weather Plan :
Rain or shine
Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
