Better Opportunities for Single Service Members
The Better Opportunities for Single Service Members (BOSS) program represents the voice of the single Service member. If you're a single Service member, BOSS members advocate for you by advancing quality of life issues on the installation, and in the barracks, to senior leaders on post and throughout the Army. "Let Your Voice Be Heard"
The BOSS program is based on three program pillars:
- Quality of Life
- Community Service
- Recreation and Leisure
As a member of BOSS, you have a voice in how you live, how you spend your leisure time and how you support the community around you. BOSS Single Service Members:
- Coordinate and participate in community service projects
- Organize recreation and leisure activities
- Actively support the quality of life needs of single Service members
The BOSS Council meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month at 4:30 p.m. at the Hobson Recreation Center on the Presidio of Monterey.
BOSS Lifeskills Activities
These FREE educational and recreational trips are made possible by BOSS (Better Opportunities for Single Service-member) Lifeskills Training Allowance. Trips are designed to impart valuable lifeskills, to promote comradary among single service members, and to reduce stress to maintain resiliency and mission readiness. Below are some examples of prior activities. To get involved, speak with your BOSS representative or better yet, become a BOSS advisor yourself and sit in on their bi-monthly meetings held at the Hobson Recreation Center.
