SINGLE AIRMAN PROGRAM

The Single Airman Programming Initiative is an Air Force initiative, endorsed by the office of the Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force (CMSAF), administered by Air Force Personnel Center, Services Directorate (AFPC/SV) and operated through installation Force Support Squadrons (FSS).

Its main GOAL is to provide Force Support Squadron resources that foster a strong culture, mission, and sense of community for single Airmen. Its OBJECTIVE is to improve technology and communication within FSS programs and activities, provide a wide variety of social and recreation opportunities through FSS recreational activities, offer MWR-life skills classes to “create a single Airman culture that supports the “whole person – healthy lifestyle.”

DEFINITION OF A SINGLE AIRMAN: An Air Force Active Duty or Air Reserve Component officer or enlisted member without a spouse. The target age group for this initiative is 18-25; however, no age group is excluded.

The Ramstein Community Center works with single Airmen to determine their needs/interests and develops programs based on their priorities. Here are some of the program ideas we received in response from our Single Airman survey:
