Since 1941, around the world and right here at home, the USO strengthens America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country throughout their service to the nation.
Volunteers are our greatest asset and the backbone of the USO. The Bob Hope USO Airport Centers are staffed by over 750 volunteers who each bring their own special skills to our organization. With our center being open 24/7, it requires a team of dedicated volunteers to keep our doors open. Over 143,000 service members traveled through the LAX airport center last year alone.
Whether helping a soldier with a connecting flight, distributing a Care Package, serving snacks with a smile, providing local information, or “welcoming home” troops from deployment, volunteers are vital to the success of the USO’s mission. While the duties of a volunteer may vary, the goal is always the same – to improve the quality of life of service members, to boost their morale and to serve as the link between service members and the American people.
Volunteers must work two four-hour shifts monthly.
