USO COVID-19 Response: In response to CDC guidelines regarding social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19, all USO Military Spouse Programs will now be delivered virtually.




The average military spouse moves 8-12 times in the span of a 20-year military career, which often results in starting over in each new location and dealing with the struggle of meeting new people, sustaining meaningful employment, and feeling a sense of community where they live. The USO has supported military spouses for many years and in 2016 launched a worldwide initiative focusing on programs to strengthen and empower military spouses by connecting them to their social, professional, and community networks.

The USO has teamed up with Brittany Boccher, the 2017 Military Spouse of the Year, to launch a series of workshops around the world. These three-hour workshops, led by Mrs. Boccher and hosted at a USO center or virtually, allow spouses to find their passion and purpose and to approach life’s challenges with a more positive and proactive outlook. Through our research conducted in 2018, The Backbone of Our Military, we found that spouses around the world felt a feeling of loss, uncertain identity and a lack of purpose caused by the rigors of military life.

This workshop helps fill that gap with the determination of empowering, encouraging and inspiring military spouses to find their identities and live their lives with purpose.

Continuing Your Journey provides the next steps for spouses to learn the tips, tools, and resources need to deep dive into personal growth and development. The purpose of this workshop is to help pinpoint and focus on different areas of progression such as creating a vision board, self-care, self-esteem, and more. These one-hour workshops are utilized for spouses to help continue their journey.
