How can the Army Family Team Building program benefit me?  
Army Family Team Building (AFTB) is a training program designed and delivered by family member volunteers. Level I classes are the backbone of the AFTB program. The focus of these classes is to help new military family members transition and adjust to the military lifestyle by teaching basic life skills and by providing information about the specific resources and differences one will find in their new Army environment. Level II is designed for those who typically have some experience as military family members and specifically for individuals who are interested in gaining or enhancing leadership skills. Courses that enhance their personal relationships, develop leadership skills, deal with crisis and conflict management, and improve communication skills comprise the core of Level II classes. Level III classes offer classes for individuals who seek to maintain and enhance current skills as well as develop more advanced leadership abilities. These classes include such topics as developing presentations and workshops, as well as looking at the big picture of the Army and how politics affects the military. Classes in all three levels are designed to encourage the development of mentor relationships and enhance networking opportunities. The skills taught in AFTB classes are by no means limited to the military environment but can be used in other areas of life. When and where a family member enters into the training is based on their experience or choice of course enrollment, not the rank or grade of the sponsor.
