Fit4Mission Suite is a modular e-learning curriculum designed to support the ethical, missional, and professional delivery of The Salvation Army's community work and social services. It provides foundational learning of The Salvation Army's mission, vision, and values for those engaging in direct service and supports to the community. The learning content supports the values of service and stewardship, both by increasing personnel capacity with enhanced training resources and through developing our awareness of day-to-day operations and risk prevention approaches as we provide hope and dignity to those we support.
