The Unite Program UNITE-Logo_180x209.png


In August 2016, Air Force Chief of Staff (CSAF) General David Goldfein, released his letter to Airmen titled, "The Beating Heart of the Air Force...Squadrons!" In turn, AFSVA was asked to establish an activity-rich program that would equip empowered Squadron/Unit commanders with options to facilitate unit cohesion. Unite provides Commanders with funding to initiate programs that will benefit all Airmen in their unit. This includes assigned Active Duty and APF/NAF Civilians. Family members are welcome to participate, but they must pay any associated fees.

Host Your First Unite Event in
5 EASY STEPS:


1) Complete the POC Appointment Letter
Squadron Commanders will initially appoint a POC for their Squadron and provide an APPOINTMENT LETTER to the Community Programmer. It can be emailed to bethzaida.cooper.1@us.af.mil

2) Event Proposal
Meet with your installation C3 to discuss your objectives, event ideas, and to complete the EVENT PROPOSAL FORM. AFSVA event approval may take up to 30 days.

3) Collect Participant Names
Participant names are required to track funding and attendance (DoD ID#’s). Names will also be used by the RAND Corporation to evaluate the program’s success through a 90-second survey that will be emailed to participants after the event.

4) HAVE FUN AT YOUR EVENT!

Your installation C3 lead typically won’t attend your Unite events, so we are relying on you to provide detailed
after-action information to improve the program

1) Ready to Execute (RTE):
RTE programs are pre-approved and easy to implement. They keep funds on the installation and should be considered first.

2) Unit Developed Program (UDP):
You have the freedom to design an event unique to your squadron on or off of the installation. Unit driven events require your Commander's signature and approval from the AF Services Activity which may take up to 30 days. (TAX EXEMPTION APPLIES)

3) Free/Volunteer Events:
Charitable work provides a cost effective team-building activity that allows co-workers to see each other in a new light and can make a real difference in your community. Free events do not need prior approval, but we still need to capture the event information.
