Unite Program

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 and Guardians in their unit. This includes assigned Active Duty and APF/NAF Civilians.

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

Hosting a Unite Event

Submit An Event Proposal
Complete an Event Proposal Form and POC Form and email them to 50FSS.Schriever.Events@spaceforce.mil. Ensure your form includes the cost breakdown for APF and NAF allocations, expected attendance, and your Commander or Deputy’s signature. Requests must be submitted to AFSVA at least 14 days in advance.

Your C3 will make payments on your behalf. If your event requires supplies or groceries, schedule a time to shop with your C3.
Purchases must be pre-approved, tax-exempt, and must include a receipt.

Have Fun At Your Event!

After Action Report
Please complete an After Action Report and send it along with DoD ID#s, and 1-3 event photos to 50FSS.Schriever.Events@spaceforce.mil
We are relying on you to provide detailed information to improve the program. DoD ID#s are requested to send participants a 60 second after action survey to examine the correlation between participation in FSS programs, services, and activities and airmen and unit readiness
