JROTC Assignment Sheet

WILL BE POSTED IN FALL SEMESTER AUGUST 2017

Purpose:

The United States Army's Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps, is a program that is offered at the high school level and teaches 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. The mission statement reflects the overall meaning and purpose of JROTC, which is “To Motivate Young People to be Better Citizens” by preparing high school students for responsible leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities, and privileges as American citizens. The program promotes graduation from high school by providing curriculum, Leadership Education and Training (LET), and rewarding opportunities that will benefit the student, community, and nation in the present and future. Though JROTC is an acronym it has transcended its original name; therefore, it will henceforth be referred to as JROTC, A Character and Leadership Development Program.
