When young Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen see a USO sign, they see the front door of their homes, they see open arms greeting them, and they see smiling faces ready to help them.” – General John Shalikashvili, United States Army

There are countless ways volunteers support USO San Diego! Whether you are volunteering at a special event, welcoming home service members, manning the front desk or providing a listening ear, your efforts are the reason service members and military families know USO San Diego is always by their side.

Our Liberty Station Center opens its doors for military personnel from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on the weekday, and 9:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the weekend, every day of the year. We like to prep for the day such as stocking our snacks and organizing our pantry, so, there are volunteering opportunities starting at 9 a.m.

This center is a relaxing place for guests. On specific days, programs such as Wednesday Night Dinners and holiday programs like Santa Store bring hundreds to the center, requiring an increased amount of volunteers on hand.670 Military Police Nation Guard HC 6.30.15 251

The Airport Center opens at 6 a.m. and closes at Midnight every day. This is a high traffic area as we support those traveling through San Diego, new recruits before they meet with the Drill Instructor, as well as those picking up family members.

USO San Diego also schedules tabling opportunities within the military and civilian communities. These provide USO San Diego a chance to share our message of lifting the spirits of the military, and what free programs are available for them, and which need the community’s support. We are always in need of people who would be willing to represent USO San Diego at events such as Speed Fest at Coronado, the Air Show at the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, Wine and Paella Festival in downtown San Diego, and many others.
