The UNITE Program was developed to provide squadron leaders with the maximum flexibility to deliver programs that build cohesion for personnel within their unit. This includes assigned Active Duty, Reserve and Both APF and NAF Civilians. Funding is based on squadron end strength.

Goals and Objectives

Support Squadron Leaders. 

Provide Squadron Commanders the opportunity to select from a menu of innovative program options.

Maximize use of FSS Facilities. 

Provide a variety of formal and informal opportunities for socializing, unit cohesion and esprit de corps.

Measure Impact. 

Follow up with units to ensure leaders needs are met and that required effects materialize or improve as a result of the unit cohesion activities.

Maximum Flexibility.

The Unite Initiative guidance sufficiently allows squadron leaders the ability to plan quality events while maintaining funding integrity.


Funding Guidelines

Programs

  • Ready to Execute (RTE). Pre-approved programs and easy to implement. FSS related events that keep funds at Osan Air Force Base should be considered first.
  • Unit Developed Program. Squadron leaders are given the discretion to create UDPs that capitalize on opportunities available in the local area. UDPs require prior approval. 
  • Free/Volunteer. Charitable work provides a cost-effective team-building activity that allows co-workers to see each other in a new light and can make a real difference in your community. Free events do not need prior approval, but we still need to capture event information.
