There are countless ways volunteers support the USO, but they all share an abiding dedication to our troops and their families. Whether it’s helping out at a special event, cheering troops at homecoming, manning a front desk or providing a listening ear, our volunteers are the reason troops know they can count on the USO. Volunteers are the lifeblood of the USO and a precious resource of thousands.

USO Center Volunteers

USO of Metropolitan New York operates centers in New York City, at Fort Hamilton Army Garrison, at JFK Airport in the JetBlue Terminal and, opening in spring 2016, we will have a new center at Newark Airport in Terminal B. We are currently accepting volunteer interest forms from individuals that live in these areas and may wish to volunteer. USO Center Volunteers are regularly-scheduled volunteers that donate their time on a regular basis at a USO center.

Get involved outside of a USO Center

If you don’t have a USO center close by, can’t make a regular commitment, or you simply want a unique kind of volunteer experience, we still need your support. Volunteers are needed for deployments, Fleet Week, Veteran’s Week, and other special events. Organize your family, friends, or co-workers to compete in races, hold backyard barbeques, or create events of your own that raise money to support our troops.
