Family Team Building

Marine Corps Family Team Building

Marine Corps Family Team Building’s (MCFTB) mission is to prepare Marines and their families to successfully meet the challenges of the military lifestyle and thereby enhancing mission readiness. We provide educational programs to foster personal growth, skill development, and resource awareness. MCFTB, along with your Unit’s Family Readiness Team, also supports you throughout deployments. Whether you are new to the Marine Corps or Yuma, or a seasoned member of the Marine Corps Family, MCFTB has opportunities for everyone. MCFTB welcomes all, including spouses, children, parents, fiancées, siblings, etc.

MCFTB is open Monday through Friday, 8:00am-4:00pm, and located in Building 598 (next to Commissary). All classes and events are free of charge, but require registration. Also, we are always in need of volunteers for on-going programs and for special events. Please contact us if you are interested.

We welcome you to stop by for a class schedule, a MCAS Resource Guide, information about the Family Readiness Program, and for details about resources, on and off base, available to Military Families. Our class calendar is available on the MCCS website; we also have flyers that you can pick up at our office.
