COMMUNITY PROGRAMS & PARTNERSHIP OFFICE (CPPO)
The Community Partnership & Programs Office (CPPO) is comprised of a small but mighty group of individuals who are all experts in their field. Our mission is to provide the base populace and patrons with quality programs, base-wide events, and opportunities for fun at Whiteman!
RECHARGE FOR RESILENCY (R4R)
Recharge for Resiliency (R4R) is the capstone for resiliency programming across the Air Force and Space Force. R4R provides resources that foster culture, mission, and a sense of community among Airmen/Guardians and their families. R4R comprises four components: Single Airmen Program Initiative (SAPI), RecOn, and Deployed Affected Program (DAP). Each part is designed to reach a specific targeted audience.
SINGLE AIRMAN PROGRAM INITIATIVE (SAPI)
The initiative provides a wide variety of social and positive recreation opportunities through Force Support Squadron (FSS) recreational activities. Also, the program offers Morale Welfare and Recreation (MWR)-life skills classes to “create a single Airman/Guardian culture that supports the “whole person” – healthy lifestyle,” improve technology and communication within FSS programs and activities. Air Force and Space Force Active Duty or Air Reserve Component officer or enlisted member without a spouse are eligible.
An initiative designed to address the challenges faced by deploying Airmen/Guardians by providing high adrenaline supervised Outdoor Recreation programs. This initiative will provide opportunities to Airmen/Guardians gearing up for deployment and returning to their home duty station after deployment as they reintegrate into regular social networks, family life, and local communities. RecOn is offered as part of the installation FSS Outdoor Recreation programs only. Contact the Outdoor Adventures Programmer at 660-687-5564 to see what high adrenaline activities Whiteman is currently offering!
DEPLOYED AFFECTED PROGRAMMING (DAP)
Allows all Air Force and Space Force assigned service members returning from deployments or dependentrestricted assignments and their family members to participate in FSS recreational activities. Eligible family members may participate while the member is gone and upon their service member’s return. Members who have deployed in support of an active operation and are on a dependent-restricted assignment, and their dependents, are eligible for this initiative. The deployed service member and their family are eligible upon receiving official orders during the deployment and up to 1 year after the service member returns to the home station.
The Unite Program empowers unit commanders to create new opportunities for recreational and cohesive activities to strengthen the bond between members within the unit. All assigned Air Force and Space Force Active Duty, Reserve, Guard, and civilian (appropriated and non-appropriated) members are authorized Unite funds.
TYPES OF UNITE PROGRAMS
The Unite Program intends to provide unit leaders with the maximum flexibility to develop and deliver recreational programs to build recreational cohesion for personnel within their unit, or subset of the unit, to include spouses and dependents at their discretion. CPPO provides squadron leaders with program ideas that are authorized uses of Unite funds. Squadron leaders are given the discretion to create Unit-Developed Programs (UDP) that capitalize on opportunities available in the geographic area. Events must be both recreational and unit cohesive to utilize Unite funds. Most MWR facilities have Unite targeted programming to assist squadron leaders in executing these funds with recreation and cohesion in mind!
