MOAA Spouse Programs Overview

From military spouse employment to military child education, we’re here for you, for life. Create your spouse account today and be a part of our voice. You have access to all of the benefits we offer and your voice can make a difference. Here’s how we serve you and your family:  

MOAA Spouse Community

We are here with you every step of way! We’re on the web – Find us on Facebook, Twitter, on our family blog “Making it in the MilLife®”, and through our monthly E-Newsletters. Also, with 410 chapters we’re probably in your backyard. We haven’t been to an event we didn’t love – tell us how we can support your pre-deployment conferences, yellow ribbon events, or spouse club meetings with advocacy or benefit information. If you are located in the Washington DC area and want to help your military community, please consider applying for our President’s Currently Serving Spouse Advisory Council.

Careers

MOAA is committed to making sure spouse employment issues and initiatives are a top priority. Every year our association plans an award-winning Military Spouse Symposia, providing knowledge, tools and events to help military spouses connect, learn more, and be inspired. Stay tuned - We could be coming to a community near you! In addition, our members and spouses enjoy a career center that can provide professional resume reviews, interview preparation, or connect you with employers at one of our corporate career fairs.

MOAA is proud to be an official partner of the Military Spouse Employment Partnership. The First Lady, Michelle Obama, and Dr. Jill Biden have met with military families, learned about their successes and challenges, and made it their priority to support them. Joining Forces is a comprehensive national initiative to mobilize all sectors of society to give our service members and their families the opportunities and support they have earned. Learn more about MOAA’s role in Joining Forces, as a member of the Military Spouse Employment Partnership.
