Serve-a-thon is annual event thrown by local non-profit, Chicago Cares. It is Chicago's largest day of service. They need leaders to help lead volunteers that day. Since our platoons know how to rock it, let's show them how it's done.
TMC will be recruiting a leader team to help run one of their service sites. The location is TBD. There will be a required training session leading up to the event, that will be scheduled around everyone's availability.
You can register at the link below. Under "how did you hear about Serve-a-thon" please put "The Mission Continues."
You must be 18 to be a leader. Sorry, no minors this time.
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.
