The Unite Program

In August 2016, Air Force Chief of Staff (CSAF) General David Goldfein released his letter to Airmen, “The Beating Heart of the Air Force…Squadron!”  This letter outlined the Squadron Revitalization Implementation Plan in three lines of effort: 1)  Focus on the Mission;  2) Strengthen Squadron Leadership and Culture;  3) Take Care of Airmen and Families.  The Air Force Services Center (AFSVC) was asked to establish an activity rich program that would equip Squadron/Unit commanders with options to facilitate unit cohesion.  The UNITE initiative helps Units develop and implement team building events through the use of Air Force Services and community-based activities and programs.  Desired outcome — enhance unit morale and unit cohesion through participation in UNITE events.  The Community Cohesion Coordinator (C3) position was created to manage the UNITE Program.
