Attention all PCSing personnel
After completion of your LEVY Section briefing, please visit your local Army Community Service (ACS) Center to receive assistance in preparation for your relocation.
The Relocation Readiness team, Army Community Service (ACS), offers training to personnel who are responsible for the unit’s sponsorship program, and for personnel who will provide sponsorship services to newcomers. The training is offered online. You will learn the concept of the program, discuss regulation AR 600-8-8, The Total Army Sponsorship Program, how to be an efficient sponsor, and the difficulties encountered by both sponsors and newcomers.
The Child and Youth Services (CYS) School Liaison and the Relocation Readiness Program (RRP) assist our school age children in obtaining teen sponsorship. Relocation does not have to be hard on kids, and the sponsorship program is designed to ease the transition.
