“To Motivate Young People to be Better Citizens.”
WHAT IS JROTC?
Junior Reserve Officer's Training Corps
JROTC is a military regulated high school program whose purpose is to educate high school students in leadership roles while making them aware of the benefits of citizenship.
In JROTC teams have an important place in our professional and personal lives. Working in teams is probably and inevitable life experience, even for people who prefer to work alone. There are always student teams, task forces, and activities/events in addition to all of the work place demands for working in a team. A team generates positive synergy through coordinated effort. But most importantly, the effectiveness of a team is influenced by both internal and external factors. Internal factors include clear purpose, informality, participation, listening, open communication, shared leadership, consensus decisions, clear roles, and task assignments ( pictures above: on the left is Tatiana Rideout, in the middle is Mitra Toomey, to the right is Teijah-Aislyn Rosas-Suenishi).
Respect is earned, honesty is appreciated, trust is gained, and loyalty is returned.
Our JROTC staff expects a lot from the cadets who join our program. We help them understand the importance of being respectful to the people around you. One of the important qualities we look for in a cadet is respect. When demonstrated cadets are awarded with a promotion of rank, ribbon, or public announcement.
