Have you heard the quote, “Give a man a fish and feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime”?
Army Family Team Building (AFTB) at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, has the same perspective. We have the tackle box to give military family members and soldiers to help them survive during their time with the Army.
The AFTB program is a series of three levels, encompassing a total of 34 classes. Students receive training on topics ranging from understanding military terms and acronyms, how to read the LES, information on resources, benefits, leadership, and interpersonal skills. There are no prerequisites. Family members and soldiers can enter the program when and where they desire.
Our goal is to improve overall readiness by promoting personal and family readiness. We are here to assist family members in adapting to the various changing Army. For soldiers and family members, knowledge is power, and this is just one of the many avenues the Army has to offer.
AFTB also offers the material in Spanish, German, and Korean. AFTB offers opportunities to anyone who is interested in helping others and child care may be available.
Please contact Frederica Norman at the AFTB office (907) 384-1513 or
