Unite Program

The USAFA Unite Program is a unit resiliency program open to Active Duty, Reservists, and APF/NAF Civilians. The program will conduct on and off-base events while adhering to all state, county, and base level COVID-19 safety guidelines and requirements. For questions, contact me so I can assist or introduce you to your unit's Unite rep.


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!"

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.

Eligibility


Unite events must be inclusive to all Airman in an organization

This includes Active Duty, Reserves, APF and NAF Civilians and cannot be divided based on rank, pay, grade, age, race, gender or religion.
