Boeing makes $5 million commitment to USO based upon success of Washington state pilot project

Investment is a large-scale replication of piloted program

Boeing has announced a $5 million, multi-year donation to help expand United Service Organizations (USO) Pathfinder – the nation’s first comprehensive employment readiness program for transitioning military service members.

The investment is a large-scale replication of the successful RP/6 model piloted in Washington state over the past several years with significant Boeing support.

In 2013, Boeing became the largest corporate partner supporting nonprofit RP/6’s launch in Lakewood, Wash., and has provided consistent funding since then to support the development and implementation of the organization’s workforce transition programs.

In 2016, the organization provided employment services to more than 2,100 service members and veterans in Washington.
