There are countless ways volunteers support the USO, but they all share an abiding dedication to our service members 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 service members know they can count on the USO.
The USO Fort Hood Center South opens to troops and their families at 9:30amam and closes at 6pm Monday through Friday, with volunteer opportunites from 9:30am to 1:30pm, 1:30pm to 5:30pm and 5:30pm to 8:30pm. The center is also open Saturdays and Holidays from 12pm to 6pm, with volunteer opportunites from 11am to 3pm and 3pm to 7pm. The USO Fort Hood Center South helps over 7,000 Soldiers and their families every month.

There are also volunteer opportunites available at our special events such as Movies on the Lawn, Family Game Night and Storytime. These volunteer times vary, depending on the event. For example, Movies on the Lawn is typically on Friday nights May through August. Volunteers are needed to help serve nacho's, help at game booths, dress up as special characters, make snow cones, pass out popcorn and help with facepainting.
