R4R Programs: Single Airman, Rec*On & DAP
In December 2015, the Air Force Services Activity (AFSVA) announced the launch of their new “Recharge for Resiliency” (R4R) program as the capstone for resiliency programming across the Air Force. R4R encompasses the following key resiliency components: the Single Airman Programming Initiative (SAPI), RecOn and Deployed Affected Programming (previously R4R). The R4R program core focus is building and sustaining ready and resilient Airmen and Families.
The main goal of the Single Airman Initiative is to foster a strong culture, mission and sense of community for single Airmen. Its objective is to improve technology and communication within FSS programs and activities, provide a wide variety of social and recreation opportunities through FSS recreational activities, and offer MWR life skills classes to create a Single Airman culture that supports the “whole person – healthy lifestyle.”
Eligibility Requirements: Open to Air Force Active Duty or Air Reserve Component officer or enlisted member without a spouse.
The RecOn Initiative is an Outdoor Recreation program designed to address the challenges faced by deploying Airmen returning to home duty stations such as reintegration into regular social networks, family life and local communities. The objective is to provide a wide range of outdoor adventure-based activities.
The Deployed Affected Programming (DAP) initiative is designed to provide support for Airmen and families impacted by deployments. FSS programs does just that by helping provide some relief from the unique challenges our deployed Airmen and their families face. This, in turn, helps build unit cohesion and a strong sense of community – both critical to the sustainment of a ready, resilient force.
Eligibility Requirements: Open to families of deployed personnel, recently returning service members and their families, or families with a service member soon to deploy.
