Marines and Spouses Asked to Help Evaluate Family Team Building Programs

Release Date: 2/20/2007

MCB QUANTICO, VA -- Headquarters Marine Corps will conduct a brief online survey to help Marine Corps leadership better understand and assess the deployment readiness of Marines and their families during irregular wartime operations.

            The online survey is open to married Marines and spouses and will gather feedback on the effectiveness, quality, and satisfaction with the Key Volunteer Network program, the Lifestyles Insights, Networking, Knowledge and Skills (L.I.N.K.S.) program, and the Spouses' Learning Series workshops.     

            The survey will be accessible at from Feb. 26 to Apr. 1, 2007, and consists of multiple-choice questions, which take about 10 minutes to complete. Responses will be kept confidential and all answers will be reported in the aggregate. Beginning Feb. 26, emails containing the survey link will be distributed directly to approximately 55,000 married active duty Marines with established email accounts, requesting survey participation. Marine spouses and married Marines who do not receive the electronic notification are also eligible to complete the survey and can do so by going directly to the survey website.

            The survey is part of a larger process to assess the Marine Corps Family Team Building program.  Headquarters and installation program mangers will take part in a rigorous process of documenting the current program and conducting benchmark analysis of our Sister Service programs, and other civilian support agencies with the goal of developing a plan for improving program effectiveness.

For more information about the survey contact your local MCCS Marine Corps Family Team Building Director or the survey project officer Nancie Sullivan at (703) 784-9517, DSN 278-9517, or email:
