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.
The Basic School Family Readiness Team, specifically, strives to integrate Marines, students, spouses, and families through routine social events. Trivia Night is hosted every Monday and Spouse’s Coffee is hosted every Thursday in the Hawkins Room – or The Hawk – located within Lopez Hall. Additionally, The Basic School hosts seasonal festivals where Marines and families can participate in themed events, games, and meet other families.
