Helpful Information

Facilitating Team building activities

Unite coordinator will work with individual units for scheduling and online credit card payment.

The UNITE Program provides Commanders with funding to initiate programs that will benefit all Airmen in their unit. This includes assigned active duty, Reserve, and APF/NAF Civilians. Call or email the UNITE POC with any questions.

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.
