Sponsorship Training

Sponsorship Training

Relocation can be mentally and emotionally demanding, expensive and time consuming. Settling into your new location and your new unit takes preparation time. A sponsor is someone from your new unit who is assigned to assist you settling into your new location.
“The Total Army Sponsorship” training is a mandatory training program implemented to educate appointed sponsors how to effectively sponsor newcomers arriving the unit, installation and community.  Educating and training appointed sponsors helps alleviate and eliminate some stresses associated with constant moving in the military.
There are three ways sponsors are trained:  ACS Relocation Readiness Program provides a quarterly two hour class.  The first hour of the training focuses on AR 600-8-8, “The Total Army Sponsorship Program” outlining procedures to complete the DA Form 5434, Sponsorship Program Counseling and Information Sheet, the role of the sponsor before and after newcomers arrive to include sample Welcome Letter, Sponsor Checklist and Needs Assessment Checklist, brief on ACS programs that would be helpful to newcomers, conduct a multiple choice test to evaluate whether Soldiers fully understand the responsibilities of being an appointed sponsor. The last hour of the training focuses on the different agencies roles in assisting newcomers to Fort Campbell. Several agencies are invited to brief appointed sponsors on matters relating to the following; housing on and off post, Child and Youth School Services (CYSS) on childcare, schools and education, medical and dental, finance for permanent change of station (PCS) financial entitlements, provost marshal and vet services. Each Soldier will receive a certificate for completing the two hour course for unit record.  Also, units can schedule an ACS Relocation Specialist to conduct sponsorship training on site at the unit.     
The third way to train appointed sponsors is a self paced program online.  The eSponsorship application located at www.militaryonesource.mil  is a secure web site designed by military home front to manage the sponsorship process with an additional function for electronic communication between appointed sponsor and the newcomer. It includes template emails and service specific text for welcome letters and a newcomer needs assessment. An official certificate for completing the course online is available for the Soldier to print for unit record.
If you would like to be a sponsor contact your unit commander. You must be appointed by your unit commander to participate in the sponsorship training program. Click here to view the Sponsorship Training flyer.
