What is UNITE?
The UNITE Program was established in August 2018 by the Air Force Services Center (AFSVC) to provide Squadron Commanders with the maximum flexibility to deliver recreational programs that build unit cohesion among personnel. The Yokota UNITE Team will provide the necessary information, tools, and funding to execute recreational focused UNITE events that facilitate unit cohesion and help revitalize squadrons.
UNITE events will benefit all Airmen in a unit – Active AF, Reserve and Civilian (appropriated and non-appropriated employees) directly assigned to the squadron. Family members and contractors are highly encouraged to participate and must pay any associated expenses.

How to request and use your UNITE funds
To receive UNITE funds, which cover activity fees and recreational activities as well as food allowance, Squadron Commanders or their designated UNITE POC's must complete and submit a UNITE Appointment Letter as well as a UNITE Event Proposal Form.
Your Yokota UNITE Team will assist you with the planning, development, and coordination of UNITE events whether on or off the installation. You have the flexibility of creating your own unit-developed event or select from a wide variety of ready-to-execute programs. There are two types of funds available for approved events:
