WHAT:

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!” The UNITE Program was developed to provide squadron leaders with the maximum flexibility to deliver programs that build cohesion for personnel within their unit. This includes assigned Active Duty and both APF and NAF Civilians.

Family members are welcome to participate, but they must pay any associated fees.

Types of Events

  • Ready to Execute (RTE)
    RTE programs are pre-approved and easy to implement. FSS related events should be considered first.
  • Unit Developed Programs (UDP)
    Squadron leaders are given the discretion to create UDPs that capitalize on opportunities available on base and in the local area. UDPs require approval and may take up to 30 days.
  • 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 real difference in you community. Free events do not need approval, but we will need to capture the information.
