Unit, Personal & Family Readiness Program Training
The Unit, Personal, and Family Readiness Program (UPFRP) is a unit centric program, guided by the Family Readiness Command Team that reinforces the relationship between the unit and the services relevant to the unit, the unit members, and their families. The primary goal of UPFRP is to empower Marines and family members, providing them the opportunities to not just survive but to thrive while taking on the challenges of the military lifestyle. Training is provided to all Command Team members, Readiness Coordinators, and the UPFRP volunteers to ensure consistency and continuity across all Marine Corps UPFRPs.
What is a Readiness Coordinator? The Readiness Coordinator, formally known as “The FRO,” is the face of the Commanding Officer’s vision for family readiness and will provide direct coordination for the Unit, Personal & Family Readiness Program.
Who is in a Marine’s Family? A Marine’s Family is defined as all members of a Marine’s Family. The Marine’s family includes the one they are “Born Into”, Sworn into” and “Married Into” as well as friends and partners that they identify as family.
