In August 2018, Still Serving, Inc. was founded by Mario P. Fields, Sergeant Major (retired) United States Marine Corps, as an all-volunteer nonprofit corporation. Focused on improving academic performance and career opportunities for students, living in underserved communities, through partnerships and donations. After honorably serving 26 years in the United States Marine Corps, he believed he could still serve communities by focusing on youth development.
According to the U.S. Department of Education, approximately 26 million K-12 students living in "low-income" or underserved communities are failing, or at risk of failing to meet state academic standards.
Our mission is to enrich the education experience and improve academic performance for K-12 students living in underserved communities through our Adopt-A-School Program.
Our vision is to improve learning opportunities and academic performance for all students in the United States.
We value our relationships with our donors, partners, educational employees and students. And strive to ensure over 95% of all donations go directly to our Adopt-A-School Program.
