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.

USO San Diego offers volunteer shift positions at 3 centers.

Liberty Station Center is our family center and is open 7 days a week. Volunteer shifts are Monday-Friday 9:00am-1:00pm and 1:00pm-5:00pm, Saturday & Sunday 10am-1pm

Our space at the Military Entrance Processing Center is located inside their cafeteria. We offer a place for recruits to relax and have some snacks or play some games. Volunteer shifts Monday-Friday 10am-2pm

Our Airport Center is open 18 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. This is a high traffic area as we support those traveling through San Diego as well as new recruits headed to boot camp and marines returning for training. We offer 4 volunteer shifts throughout the day.

These positions help to facilitate day-to-day operational needs to assist our military members and their families while they are in the center.

Other opportunities such as delivering USO San Diego programs or helping with special events are available as well. We have several recurring programs including; Mobile Farmers Market, Wednesday Night Dinner and our MilSpouse & Teen Talk programs.

Some of our special events include our USO Baby Shower, Santa Store and Giving Tree as well as countless others.

There is ALWAYS an opportunity for volunteers to get involved!
