BUILDING UNIT COHESION THROUGH GROUP RECREATION

Why Unite?

There are so many ways the Unite Program can be used. The main focus of the program is to build unit cohesion. The program can be used to develop a new skill, or competency, improve physical fitness, increase moral, promote interaction, have fun and so much more!

Goals

1. Support SQ Leaders

2. Maximize use of FSS Facilities

3. Measure Impact

4. Provide maximum flexibility to SQ commanders

Program Development

1. Ready to Execute (RTE): FSS Related events should be considered first as they are pre-approved and easy to implement. This also keeps funds on the installation.

2. Unit Developed Program (UDP): UDP’s capitalize on opportunities in the local area and require prior approval from the AFSVC. Approval may take up to 30 days.

3. Volunteer/Free: 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 approval, but information still needs to be captured.

Eligibility

Unite programs benefit all airmen in a unit including assigned active duty, reserve and APF/NAF Civilians.

Family members can participate but they must pay any applicable fees
