Initial Key Spouse Training
June 6, 2019 @ 8:30 AM - 3:00 PM
The Key Spouse program was developed as a Quality of Life initiative out of concern for the Air Force families. It is a formal unit program that offers informal peer-to-peer/Wingman support to families. Because of the impact of the long war’s TEMPO, force reduction, and the CAIB feedback, spouses are showing signs of stress with increases in domestic situations, suicidal gestures, and attempts.
The June Initial Key Spouse Training will be held on 6 June from 8:30am – 3pm in the Airmen & Family Readiness Center (Bldg. 732)
The AF standardized and deployed the Key Spouse Program in March 2009 and has many benefits, to include: increased awareness of installation/community resources, identifying & resolving issues at lowest levels, enhanced up/down information flow, prepared and supported families during separations, increased sense of unit support, improved quality of life among unit families, increased readiness and retention, and enhanced family resiliency. The Key Spouse program establishes continuous contact with spouses/families, as well as providing a link to leadership. They are also able to provide an informal sounding board, which is vital to building strong AF communities. Each person who completes the course receives a certificate stating his or her completion of the course. Key spouses are appointed by leadership. This class is by reservation only. Must sign up 2 days before the class and have a commander appointed letter.
