The Mission Continues Puerto Rico Service Platoon is joining forces with the National Parks Conservation Association and the National Park Service for an INCREDIBLE two day service project at El Morro!
This project is in honor of Independence Day
El Morro has a rich military history with the Spanish and American militaries, and was declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations.
The fort has sustained damage from Hurricane Maria, so we will need 50 volunteers each day for a total of 100 The Mission Continues volunteers to come together and help beautify El Morro.
Volunteers will be taking on a huge painting project inside the fort, in addition to other repair work.
Lunch and water will be provided to all volunteers, and this opportunity is open to youth and families.
What To Wear :
The Mission Continue blue shirt. We will be providing new shirts to all first-time volunteers!
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.
