Founded in 1894 and headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colo., the United States Olympic Committee serves as the National Olympic Committee and National Paralympic Committee for the United States. The USOC is responsible for the training, entering and funding of U.S. teams for the Olympic, Paralympic, Youth Olympic, Pan American and Parapan American Games, while serving as a steward of the Olympic Movement throughout the country.
As the steward of the Olympic and Paralympic Movements in the United States, the USOC recognizes the need to increase diversity and ensure the inclusion of all U.S. citizens. To this end, we encourage individuals from every background to apply for career opportunities.
Unlike most National Olympic Committees, the USOC does not receive federal funding for its programs. Instead, it relies on the generosity of the American public to help U.S. athletes remain competitive. – less
