Unite Program

The UNITE program funds FUN! With a focus on revitalizing squadrons, increasing resilience and readiness, the UNITE Program is set up by the Air Force Services Activity to allow commanders to facilitate unit cohesion by implementing and developing team-building events and community-based activities and programs. The program is designed to benefit all Airmen in a unit to include active duty, reserve, and appropriated and non-appropriated civilian employees. There are numerous options both inside and outside the installation.


Unite programs benefit all Airmen in a unit including Assigned Active Duty, Reserve, and APF/NAF Civilians.

Know Before You Call

  • Funds cannot be used to augment holiday parties on or off the installation.
  • Meals must be used in conjunction with an approved team-building event.

Event Categories

Unite events are classified into three different categories:

Ready to Execute (RTE):
FSS related events should be considered first as they are pre-approved, easy to implement and keep funds on the installation.

Unit Developed Events (UDE)
Squadron leaders are given the discretion to create UDPs that capitalize on opportunities available in the local area. UDPs require prior approval through the Air Force Services Activity (AFSVA) and may take up to 30 days.

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 significant impact in your community. Free events do not need approval, but we still need to capture the information.
