Join us as The Mission Continues Harlem Platoon returns to Mosaic Prep Academy in East Harlem once again to participate in a large day of service geared towards revitalizing the school so that it is safe and optimizes student's learning experience.
During our Veterans Day service project last year, our team of motivated veterans demolished old benches and garden bed that were no longer usable. This Earth Day, our platoon will build the school new benches and garden beds so that the school can restart it's agriculture program to teach it's scholars about fruits, vegetables, and the joys of growing food.
Project tasks for the day will include installing a privacy screen on their patio, building deck benches, building garden beds, building kids picnic tables, building bird-feeders, mounting an outdoor chalkboard to a wall, building 2 Adirondack chairs, demolishing 15 benches, painting the back wall of the auditorium, and if we have enough people, painting a couple classrooms. We need all the hands possible to make this project a success. We look forward to seeing you there!
What To Wear :
Clothes you don't mind getting dirty

There's street parking but keep in mind that it's NYC street parking!
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.
