USO Pathfinder Transition

With roughly 15% of the military transitioning each year and 33% of the military relocating each year, USO recognizes the need to effectively increase the post-military career employment prospects for service members and support military spouses, who are constantly in transition due to their service member’s frequent change of duty stations. USO Transition focuses these efforts in the following concentrations:

  • Employment Readiness
  • Employment Services
  • Family Transition
  • Stronger Spouses
  • Transition Skills Training

USO Transition offers a variety of workshops, seminars, transition education programs, coffee connections, military spouse networking events, and more.

Additionally, the USO Pathfinder® Transition Program extends the USO experience to active duty, Reserve, National Guard and military spouses beyond Fort Belvoir by offering professional development services throughout the duration of the service member or military spouse’s career, as well as when they transition out of the military and settle into their new communities.


Our team also works with a number of corporate partners to be able to offer career education programs, including:
