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.
The Total Army Sponsorship Program (TASP) is now accessible in Army Career Tracker (ACT)to assist Soldiers and DA Civilians during the transition to their new assignment. Service Members will fill out the DA Form 5434 Sponsorship Program Counseling and Info Sheet in ACT. Commanders now have the ability to guarantee the successful assignment of individual sponsors through the streamlined Sponsorship process found only in ACT. TASP ensures that incoming Soldiers are assigned Sponsors prior to reporting to their new installations. Obtaining a Sponsor reduces the stress of reporting to a new unit, enhancing resiliency, and improving readiness among Soldiers and family members.
It is important to ensure you have Common Access Card (CAC) access during your PCS movement to maintain in communications with your sponsor. If you do not have CAC access, you can use your DS Login during leave period, TDY enroute, or PCS travel. It may also be helpful is share a civilian email address with your TASP sponsor.
If you are on orders to Korea and are less than 30 days from your PCS report date, or if you have not been contacted by your sponsor, contact a Korea Sponsorship Coordinator at the phone numbers below or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
