Moving is a way of life for service members and their families. Resources like MilitaryINSTALLATIONS, Plan My Move and Military OneSource provide important information to help make moving easier. For many newcomers, a sponsor can help add that personal touch.
A sponsor is assigned by a newcomer's gaining unit and helps the newcomer before, during and after a move. If you haven't been assigned a sponsor, you can request one through your new unit. Units try to match sponsors and service members by rank and family status.
To help prepare sponsors for success, the Sponsorship Program provides training and access to important information and resources that can help newcomers master their move. The Sponsorship Program helps sponsors fulfill their responsibilities, which may include:
Note: Responsibilities may vary based on service-specific policies and guidance. Make sure to check with your service branch for sponsor training requirements.

For more information on the Sponsorship Program, contact your installation Military and Family Support Center.
Sponsorship is also available for youth. Installation youth sponsorship programs help military-connected youth make a successful transition to a new community. Primarily directed to preteen and teenaged youth, installation youth programs/centers provide information and materials on programs and services available at their new location. Where available, youth can exchange emails, talk on the phone or chat online with other youth. The youth program staff at your new installation can offer more information on installation youth sponsorship programs.
You can also contact your installation School Liaison Program office for information about school-based youth sponsorship programs such as Anchored4Life and Student2Student. These peer-to-peer programs help your student adjust to and navigate their new school.
If your child would like to become a youth sponsor, contact your installation School Liaison Program or youth program/center.
Families with children may also want to visit Military Kids Connect, an online community for military children and youth. The site offers games, videos and links to teen-led installation tours.
If you are within 90 days of departure from your current assignment and do not have a sponsor, please contact your gaining unit's Commander Support Staff to receive assistance with obtaining a sponsor. Their contact information can be found on the global. If you will be assigned to a detachment, Air Forces Network, Army or 8th Fighter Wing tenant unit, please search the Kunsan Air Base global for the appropriate agency and contact them via email. Upon receipt of your PCS orders, send an electronic copy to your sponsor so they can set up your mailbox and provide your new mailing address. If you do not have a mailbox, your general delivery mailing address will be as follows: rank, name, PSC 2 Box 5000, APO AP 96264. Occasionally newcomers arrive and find their sponsor is on their midtour leave and no one is available to assist them. To prevent this from happening, please ensure you stay in contact with your sponsor so they can make arrangements for someone to assist you if they will be on leave when you arrive. If you have had limited contact with your sponsor or have not received your sponsor, please locate a contact number for your gaining unit or call 315-782-1110 (base operator) to be connected to your CSS or contact the Airman and Family Readiness Center Relocation Program manager via email at 8FSS.AFRC.OfficialCoord@us.af.mil.
