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, AFSVC 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.
Unite is available to all Air Force and Space Force Active Duty, Reserve, Guard, and APF/NAF DoD civilians assigned to Wright-Patterson AFB and local ANG bases.
Spouses and Dependents are eligible to use Unite funding with written approval from Squadron/Unit Commander.
Contractors are welcome to participate but must pay any associated fees or costs.
Types of Events
Unit Developed Program (UDP)
Squadron leaders are given discretion to capitalize on opportunities available in the local area and on base within Force Support Squadron (FSS).
Charitable work proves a cost-effective team building activity that allows coworkers to see each other in a new light and can make a real difference in your community.
There are a variety of funded and free virtual options. These are programs & resources that still promote cohesion while social distancing.
