The 158th Fighter Wing Airman and Family Readiness Program provides education, support, and resources that promote individual and family readiness. We work with local and state support agencies. Together we ensure that our members and their families have resources to support success in the Vermont Air National Guard.
CHILD AND YOUTH PROGRAMS: Child and youth opportunities are sponsored by the National Guard Bureau, Vermont National Guard, and UVM Extension Service through funding, grants and donations from the Department of Defense, National Guard Bureau and Community Partners through our Military Kids Vermont Program (MKVT). For information on child and youth camps and summits contact the A&FRC or the Vermont National Guard Family Programs Child and Youth Coordinator at 802-338-3369.
EMPLOYMENT ASSISTANCE: The Airman and Family Readiness Center (A&FRC) works with Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) and the VT Department of Labor (VDOL) to provide service members and their family members with assistance in the job hunt, preparing a job application/resume and preparing for interviews.
