Welcome to Broward 1st Platoons inaugural service project!
We will be hosting a service project in partnership with Jack & Jill Children's Center.
Founded in 1942 by the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale, Jack & Jill Children’s Center started as a day-care for women whose husbands went to war and now needed to enter the workforce.
Jack & Jill Children’s Center is the oldest nonprofit provider of early childhood education in Broward county.
The changes in family structure has led to their evolution as an organization, transforming Jack & Jill into what it is today: A school for children of high-need working families, fighting to break the cycle of poverty in South Florida.
We will be putting together a few playground sets as well as laying some AstroTurf. Along with that we will be painting a short fence and installing a bamboo screen along the outer perimeter fence.
Drinks and snacks will be provided.
We will also have a DJ so be ready to wiggle while you work!
Lets' show Broward County that Broward 1st Platoon is here and what we are all about!

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.
