Unite Program

Revitalizing Squadrons
“..the beating heart of the Air Force”

In August 2016, Air Force Chief of Staff (CSAF) General David Goldfien, 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 must pay any associated fees.

Types of Events

Ready to Execute (RTE)

RTE programs are pre-approved and easy to implement. FSS related events keep funds on the installation and should be considered first.

Unit Developed Program (UDP)

Squadron leaders are given the discretion to create UDPs that capitalize on opportunities available in the local area. UDPs require the Air Force Services Activity (AFSVA) and may take up to 30 days so plan accordingly.

Free/Volunteer

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 difference in your community. Free events do not need approval, but we still need to capture the information.

Host your first Unite event!

2. Event Proposal

Meet with your installation C3 to discuss your objectives, event ideas, and to complete the “Event Proposal Form” or download the form and email to .
