Description/Job Summary

For over 75 years, the USO has been the nation's leading organization to serve the men and women in the U.S. military, and their families, throughout their time in uniform. From the moment they join, through their assignments and deployments, and as they transition back to their communities, the USO is always by their side.

Today's USO continuously adapts to the needs of our men and women in uniform and their families, so they can focus on their very important mission. We operate USO centers at or near military installations across the United States and throughout the world, including in combat zones, and even un-staffed USO service sites in places too dangerous for anyone but combat troops to occupy.

The Transition Site Manager is responsible for successful management and delivery of USO transition services at one or more USO locations.

Assist with development of new and existing working relationships with U.S. military and local community leadership in order to maximize service awareness and delivery.*
  • Lead, manage and mentor Transition Scouts and volunteer workforce, ensuring staffing levels are consistent with service delivery standards. Perform assigned duties in the absence of Area Director.*
