Marine Corps Family Team Building

Marine Corps Family Team Building offers workshops and training sessions that aim to foster readiness and resiliency to Marines and their families. MCFTB is comprised of 6 different programs:

  • Lifestyles, Insights, Networking, Knowledge, Skills (L.I.N.K.S.)
  • Family Readiness Program Training (FRPT)
  • Life Skills Training
  • Readiness and Deployment Support Training (RDST)
  • Kids and Teen Program
  • Volunteer Coordination

The L.I.N.K.S. program offers an orientation to the Marine Corps Lifestyle, helping participants understand and adapt to the unique challenges military life often presents.

FRPT provides training and support to personnel, Marines and family members in support of the Unit Personal and Family Readiness Program (UPFRP).

Life Skills Training provides the skills and tools needed to enhance personal growth for both the individual Marine and their family members. The program provides the tools necessary to navigate the unique Marine Corps lifestyle for the entire family through workshops that promote healthy living, relationship enhancement, and self-improvement.

Readiness and Deployment Support Training (RDST) provides a continuum of readiness education and deployment support, including pre-, mid-, and post-deployment briefs and workshops.

The Kids and Teen Program connects military youth to promote readiness and resilience to teens through various workshops and educates them on the Marine Corps values and traditions.

Volunteer Coordination assists Marines and their families find volunteer opportunities both on their installation and in the surrounding areas.
