First step to becoming a sponsor is taking the e-sponsorship online training.This is mandatory for all sponsors. Once completed print two copies of your certificate (keep one copy for your records and give the other to your INTRO Monitor). The resources found on the e-sponsorship site are now service specific but must be tailored to fit the needs of the inbound servicemember/their family. Details are not Travis AFB specific; see the items below for Travis AFB sponsor resources.
June 1, 2015 marked a renewed emphasis of the sponsor program across the Department of Defense & Travis Air Force Base. The DOD has developed a new eSAT training site equipped with an online training center and available resources and tools to assist you in providing the best transition experience for our new arrivals. View the process flowchart here.
Recently, the program was further streamlined. More specifically:
Step 1 -- Download a Sponsor Checklist and Newcomer Needs Assessment
Step 2 -- Accomplish all pre-arrival actions listed on the checklist
Step 3 -- Accomplish all arrival actions listed on the checklist
Step 4 -- Accomplish all post-arrival actions listed on the checklist
Step 5 -- Accomplish closure actions listed on the checklist
