Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps
The United States Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps, or JROTC, is designed to teach high school students the value of citizenship, leadership, service to the community, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment, while instilling in them self-esteem, teamwork, and self-discipline. Its focus is reflected in its mission statement, "To motivate young people to be better citizens." It prepares high school students for responsible leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities, and privileges as American citizens. The proram is a stimulus for promoting graduation from high school, and it provides instruction and rewarding opportunities that will benefit the student, community, and nation.
The JROTC offers classes at four high schools that provide leadership training for students. The JROTC students coordinate and conduct the unit's activities (under instructor supervision), plan and manage large-scale community and school service projects, and develop tact and communication skills.
