In1993, the Midwest and Western regions were combined and called the Midwest-Western Region.

On April 13, 1996 during the regional meeting; North Bay Area was the first chapter installed in the newly combined Midwest-Western Region.

Continentals in the Midwest-Western Region have created innovative activities while they volunteer their time through outreach programs in youth centers, schools, pediatric wards, homes for the delinquent, special needs and emotionally challenged youth.

Continentals volunteer innovatively through tutoring, mentoring, after-school programs, apparel donations and Walk-a-thons. Mentoring programs are a major component of the Continental approach.
