UNITE Program

The Unite program provides Commanders with funding to initiate recreational programs that will benefit all Airmen in their unit including assigned Active Duty and APF/NAF Civilians. 

Program Goals

  • Provide an opportunity for fun
  • Increase morale and Esprit de Corps
  • Get out and be active
  • Help create a unit of inclusion that values all members
  • Build strong and long-lasting relationships
  • Learn more about your home-station and local area

Event Planning

  1. Discuss ideas with unit members and commander
  2. Complete the UNITE-EventProposalForm_2022.pdf and email it to janessa.vageline.1@us.af.mil at least 7 days in advance
  3. Once approved, work with your Unite C3 to make tax exempt payments
    AFSVC will not provide reimbursement to events that have not been approved. If a squadron executes an event without approval, all expenses will be the responsibility of the squadron.
  4. During event, have fun and connect with colleagues
  5. After the event, submit your AAR and 1-3 event photos


Designed to pay for or offset the cost of cohesive recreational activities, equipment rentals, and program supplies

NAF dollars may only be used in support of approved recreational activities; Unite IS NOT a food and beverage program and therefore cannot be utilized without an activity

Unite funds may be spent on and off the installation. Event costs that exceed the per person amount, may be supplemented with booster club funds or personally funded. *Supplies such paper plates, napkins, & charcoal are considered APF supplies.


Events must be inclusive to all Airmen in a SQ. This includes AD, Reserve, and APF/NAF civilians. Events cannot be divided based on rank, pay grade, age, race, gender, or religion.

Unite funds CAN be further divided amongst work centers and flights.
