The goal of Readiness and Deployment Support is to prepare families for the unique challenges of a deployment, in addition to maintaining a constant state of readiness independent of deployment.
Readiness and Deployment Support Trainers coordinate and deliver briefs and workshops to inform and support your unit through every stage of deployment. The information presented in these briefs is critical for Marines/Sailors (single and married) and their family members to be aware of in order to be prepared and have a successful deployment.

Essential Life Skills for Military Families
Essential Life Skills is designed specifically for Reserve component military members and their families. These interactive and engaging workshops will help participants deal with the unique challenges experiencing as a reserve military family. Held in the local community to the unit, the classes are taught by Readiness and Deployment Support Trainers, from Marine Corps Family Team Building, Marine Forces Reserve.
Participants will discover practical and enjoyable ways to create strong, healthy and resilient relationships. They will gain knowledge about managing finances and routine legal issues, becoming a better listener and problem solver and parenting together and apart. The four modules are Preparing for Unexpected Events, Finance, Legal, and Resilience in the family.
Essential Life Skills for Military Families is ideal for Pre Deployment preparations, but can be held anytime as Readiness training.
