Wordy Wednesday…AFTB!


Okay, folks, it’s that time again.  It’s Wednesday and today’s word is AFTB or Army Family Team Building.  Here is the mission statement for the AFTB classes:

Army Family Team Building Mission Statement

“Our mission is to educate and empower members of the military community to develop skills and encourage behaviors that strengthen self-reliance, promote retention, and enhance readiness.”

Okay, AFTB classes  aren't usually this big.  They are in a smaller, more personal setting so it's a great place to make new friends.  But, you get the idea, right?  :)

I had taken the classes back in 2006 when I was a brand new army wife and was trying to make some sense of this crazy military life.  The curriculum has just been revamped and I had the opportunity to take Level II (now called Level G) last week and it was great!  It was a small class and I got to meet a couple of really cool ladies (and we now have some plans to hang out outside of class- new friends, always a bonus!).  Here are the topics covered in each of the levels:

You don’t have to take the levels in order, so stop by ACS on-post and see which classes they have coming up!  If you don’t live close to an army post or have trouble making it to class, check them out on-line.  It’s not as fun as meeting new people and taking the class in person, but it’s still a way to get some great information.  Check it out at:  http://www.arfp.org/index.php/training/64-aftb-online-training-and-classes
