Come join The Mission Continues Puerto Rico Service Platoon for our Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (JROTC) Leadership Project at Antilles Military Academy on Saturday, March 9th.
Antilles Military Academy is home to the first-ever JROTC program in Puerto Rico....and they need our help.
Hurricane Maria damaged their competition space, which means their students have not been able to practice or invite other schools to compete.
The mission of JROTC is to instill in students the values of citizenship, personal responsibility and a sense of accomplishment. Their goal is to motivate young people to be better citizens.
What better way to help them achieve this goal than by showing them the way? Our volunteers will be clearing and cutting overgrowth and reopening their space for an upcoming competition later this month. We will be joined by JROTC youth, who will serve alongside our veteran and civilian volunteers!
Lunch and water will be provided, all we ask is that you grab a fellow veteran or civilian who wants to help, and meet us there.

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.
