Spouse Education and Career Opportunities (SECO)


Command leaders play a vital role in keeping local and regional employers, service providers and military spouses connected with each other on a daily basis.

These connections help spouses overcome barriers to education, career and employment opportunities as they experience frequent relocations to new duty stations throughout their service member's active-duty career.

The resources provided here will provide the following:

  • Connect command leaders to military command-owned support resources
  • Provide the latest information regarding overarching Spouse Education and Career Opportunities program services
  • Help raise awareness regarding career counseling services, education and financial assistance, professional licensing and credentials across state lines, mentoring services, networking and employment opportunities


Employment programs support spouses of active-duty, National Guard and Reserve Component service members.
