Unite Program

What is Unite?

The UNITE Program was developed to provide squadron leaders with the maximum flexibility to deliver programs that build cohesion for personnel within their unit. UNITE events focus on units rather than individuals with an emphasis on team building. Events are open to all Airmen including Active Duty, Reserve, and APF and NAF Civilians. It is up to your unit to determine what type of event will most benefit your squadron. Types of events include: Custom Events located on or off-base conceived by the unit or Ready-to-Execute Events that are ready made events, see below for more details. UNITE Video, here.
