USO Transition Specialists can help develop a personalized Action Plan and help you take full advantage of services and resources that are the best fit for you and your spouse in your new community.

How It Works The USO Pathfinder Transition Program works with strategic partners to connect service members and military spouses to resources through a holistic approach, focusing on:

Employment

Education - Including leading online learning platforms like Skillsoft, IBM SkillsBuild, and Coursera as well as the new 8-week course “Making Your Military Transition a Transformation”

Financial readiness

Mentorship

Increased access to relevant veterans’ benefits in their communities

Through the creation of an individualized action plan, USO Transition Specialists collaborate with individuals to identify their personal and professional goals and build a roadmap to achieving them, while also identifying services and resources that are the best fit for their needs. Additionally, this program offers support to plan for life after the military, connecting participants to valuable resources for a smooth transition to civilian life.

USO Transition Specialists provide these free services through one-on-one support (either virtually, or in-person) and help military families create a plan for success now – and for the future.

“[The USO] truly, genuinely cares about everybody that comes through those doors. It’s because of them that I got the job.” - Kristin Rogers, U.S. Army Veteran and USO Pathfinder Transition Program Participant
