Guard Family Team Building (GFTB)

•

The GFTB Program is designed for everyone: Service members, spouses, parents, children, retirees, civilian employees, and interested community members. It helps the Guard “family” by teaching all aspects of life associated with the military, specifically the National Guard. Please visit the GFTB Web site at www.gftb.org

 

The experience and success of the Army Family Team Building (AFTB) provided a model upon which to build a distinct Guard-focused program.

GFTB Overview

Guard Family Team Building is a specifically designed education and training program for and about the National Guard community.
