The JROTC Mission
“To Motivate Young People to be Better Citizens”
The mission and philosophy of the JROTC is “To Motivate Young People to be Better Citizens.” The program is a service to our nation that provides cadets the motivation and skills to remain drug free, graduate from high school, and become successful citizens.
JROTC works to instill in students at secondary education institutions the values of citizenship, service to the community and the United States, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment.
JROTC cadets may qualify for an advanced placement in the Senior ROTC Program or in the Active or Reserve components of the Armed Forces. Cadets may be authorized an advancement in enlistment grade if they have completed three or more years of JROTC with a recommendation from the SAI concerned.
The JROTC does not recruit for any branch of the military. The only time a military subject is brought up is when questions arise from the class in reference to a military subject. Under the JROTC curriculum, the cadet will learn citizenship, leadership, life skills, and he will also learn about personal growth under a program called Winning Colors.
