The Mission Continues commemorated 9/11 by holding a one-day volunteer event at Fulton Leadership Academy on Saturday, Sept. 7., The Mission Continues is a nonprofit and new GCSA Associate Member that empowers veterans to serve their communities while working alongside nonprofit partners and community leaders. The organization seeks to assist with community revitalization efforts, improve educational resources and enlarge access to parks and green spaces.
At Fulton Leadership Academy, volunteers worked to install a fence, beautify the school’s courtyard, add benches and picnic tables and make improvements to the teachers’ lounge. Several GCSA staff members were among those pitching in during the volunteer day.
The Mission Continues also held the first of several volunteer days at International Community School (ICS) in DeKalb County. On Saturday, Aug. 31, volunteers painted walkways that connect to the public charter school’s extended campus classroom trailers (pictured on the right). The efforts were part of phase 1 of a number of improvement projects that are planned at the school. GCSA is excited to see an Associate Member making a visible impact for students and teachers at several of our member schools.
