LINES OF EFFORT

The Army Reserve builds partnerships with private and public organizations in order to maximize success at home and abroad while advancing individual, leader, and unit readiness.

INDIVIDUAL READINESS: 
In collaboration with organizations that advance employment, physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, financial, and Family wellness, we increase the overall readiness of our Soldiers, Civilians, and Family Members.

Leader Readiness:
By partnering with organizations that provide opportunities for professional and trade career development, mentor-protégé, credentialing, and certifications as well as provide training and licensure opportunities that are recognized by the civilian sector, we increase our leader readiness.

Unit Readiness: 
We leverage partnerships to enhance training both in and out of the continental United States while supporting missions for the Geographic Combatant Commands and Army Service Component Commands.
