USO-Metro Transition

With roughly 15% of the military transitioning each year and 33% of the military relocating each year, USO-Metro 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-Metro Transition focuses these efforts in the following concentrations:

  • Employment Readiness
  • Employment Services
  • Family Transition
  • Project Next S.T.E.P.
  • Stronger Spouses
  • Transition Skills Training

Based out of the USO Warrior and Family Center at Fort Belvoir, USO-Metro 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.
