The Mission

OPERATION ENDEAVOR is a 501(c)(3) non-profit M99 missioned to provide training in rescue, emergency medicine and trauma, while supporting public health and safety, EMS system development, and disaster preparedness in developing regions of the world - where men, women and children live under the shadows of untimely death from traumatic injury, disease, disaster, war refugee displacement, disparity and extreme poverty. Volunteers, faithful to the call to serve people in greatest need, are deployed globally to bring lifesaving skills and direct support to others, seeking to improve survivability, and thereby affirming the spirit, worth and dignity of those they serve utilizing these four pillars:

Develop training solutions in support of lifesaving, customized to the needs of the populations in extreme need in the global Strategic Areas of Focus (SAF).

Deploy highly skilled teams operating with Incident Command System-derived methodology, coupled with Team Resource Management, to mitigate risk and achieve mission objectives safely and effectively in environments of high variability.

Instruct and advise volunteers and indigenous professionals in the development of lifesaving skills, and strengthen the existing systems through collaboration.

Transform regions beset by a lack of lifesaving services by effectively improving and promoting survivability and stability of life...So That Others Will Live.
