Take Real FRG command team training
The ACS Command Team Training is for company commanders and first sergeants, but also informative for brigade and battalion commanders. This course delineates the roles and responsibilities of the command team in helping the Family Readiness Group to execute the Family Readiness mission. Topics include: Family Readiness, Mission Essential Tasks for FRGs, FRG Elements and Operations, Communications, Volunteer Management, FRG Funding, and Resources. Please call 912-767-1257 to register, or register at the ACS Eventbrite page. This is a Hunter Army Airfield training event.

Take Family Readiness Liasion training
The Family Readiness Liaison course will be conducted 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug 15 in ACS building 87. The training is designed to prepare Soldiers who are appointed as FRLs to assist with the operational, logistical and administrative aspects of the FRG. As a liaison between the command and the FRG volunteer, the FRL needs to know the ins and outs of the FRG and how their role can assist both the command and volunteers. The course covers: Leadership Management, Volunteer Management, Communication Network, Stability Support and the FRG, Non-Mission Essential Activities, and Resources. Call 912-767-1257 to register, or register at the ACS Eventbrite page.

AFTB set to empower, teach Army life
Did you know Army Family Team Building is back? What is Army Family Team Building you say? AFTB is all about spouses teaching spouses about Army Life and empowering them. The team at Army Community Service and the spouse volunteer trainers will conduct Getting to Know the Army 9 a.m. to noon Aug. 23 in ACS building 87. During this training, spouses will learn Army acronyms, rank, customs and courtesy’s because being an Army spouse is not like being a spouse in the civilian sector. Please call 912-767-1257 to register or register at the ACS Eventbrite page.

ACS offers CARE Team training
Readiness is our primary focus and ensuring Families are well taken care of during deployment remains paramount. ACS will be offering CARE Team training 10 a.m. to noon Aug. 24 in ACS building 87. This training will teach unit spouses how to support CARE Team operations and the roles they can fill. There will be frank discussions about injuries and catastrophic events. The time to build a CARE Team is not when an incident occurs. For more information about this valuable training, call 912-767-1257.

ACS building is accessible to everyone
Army Community Service wishes to inform our community that our facilities meet, or exceed, the standards for persons with disabilities. Our facilities are wheelchair accessible; and should you need assistance upon arrival, please inform one of our staff members.
