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 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. Free childcare is also available with advance 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 Marine Families. Our class calendar is available on our website, as well as on our MCFTB Quarterly Postcards. These postcards are delivered to all on-base housing and available in 598, the Exchange, Library, Post Office, and other locations on base.
Bloom is our monthly electronic newsletter that will keep you in the know. Each month we provide families with information about MCFTB classes and events, local and base events, personal stories, and important information and resources for Military Families. Read the latest edition on our website and sign up to receive it monthly.
LifeSkills classes offer opportunities for personal and professional growth, as well for developing practical life competencies. New classes appear monthly so check our schedule to find a workshop that interests you. Read on for descriptions of classes offered.
MCFTB supports your Unit’s Family Readiness Officer (FRO), Command Team, and volunteer assistants and advisors. Visit this page to learn more about the Family Readiness Program and for contact information for your FRO.
Readiness & Deployment Support Programs provide classes and briefs designed to educate, build resiliency, and support Marines and families, including children, before, during, and after deployments.
This essential “Marine Corps 101” class is offered for Marines, Spouses, Couples, Kids (7-10), and Teens (11+).

This is the perfect class for those new to the Marine Corps, new to Yuma, or those needing a refresher on the ever changing Marine Corps. There is something for everyone!
