Junior Reserve Officer's Training Corps (JROTC) 
The Junior Reserve Officer's Training Corps (JROTC) is a US military-run program for high school students. It is an elective high school course taught by military personnel at selected private and public high schools throughout the United States and its territories. It is also taught abroad through the Department of Defense Dependents School System, which primarily serves the dependents of military personnel stationed overseas. The JROTC Curriculum encompasses a broad spectrum of academic and extracurricular activities, including: Communication Skills, Leadership, Physical Fitness, Map Reading, First Aid, Drug Abuse Prevention, History, Citizenship, Technology Awareness, Geography, and many others.

JROTC prepares high school students for leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities, and privileges as American citizens. JROTC is designed to teach high school students the value of citizenship, service to the community, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment, while instilling in them self-esteem, teamwork, and self-discipline. It is a stimuli for promoting graduation from high school and it provides instruction and rewarding opportunities which will benefit the student, community, and nation. Its focus is reflected in its mission statement, "To motivate young people to be better citizens." Students who are in JROTC are not in the military and are not obligated to join the military, although they do wear military uniforms (usually once a week) to school.

If you are interested in learning more about the JROTC Programs, contact your high school’s JROTC representative. Current information can also be obtained by visiting their web site, calling, or writing to the JROTC headquarters for each Service at:
