About USO PathFinder:

The USO Pathfinder® Transition Program extends the USO experience to active duty, Reserve, National Guard and military spouses 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.

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
  • 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. This program offers support to service members even 12 months after they have officially left service, providing them with resources well along their journey to civilian life.
