April is National Rebuilding Month and exemplifies the mission of Rebuilding Together, helping to solve for the urgent need for safe homes and communities for everyone. National Rebuilding Day takes place each year on the last Saturday of the Month, and this year this is April 27, 2019.
The Mission Continues' Boston Platoon's operation is focused on supporting families experiencing housing insecurity, so partnering with Rebuilding Together Boston for National Rebuilding Day is a natural fit. We are looking for at least 15 kickass volunteers who want to get their hands dirty with making critical home repairs to deserving families in Boston.
This event is for ages 16-17 volunteering with a parent, and otherwise for ages 18+.

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.
