Project Description

We motivate young people to be better citizens

The U.S. Army Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) is one of the largest character development and citizenship programs for youth in the world. Army 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.

Curriculum programs designed to product leaders

Alabama’s U.S. Army’s JROTC currently has 77 programs throughout the state. As JROTC students (Cadets) progress through the program, they experience opportunities to lead other Cadets. We prepare high school students for responsible leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities, and privileges as American citizens. Our program is a stimulus for promoting graduation from high school, and it provides instruction and rewarding opportunities that will benefit the student, community, and nation.

Our cirriculum programs consist of the following:

  • Financial Education and Planning

  • First Aid and CPR Certification

  • US History and Citizenship

  • Military History

  • Physical Fitness and Nutrition

  • Career Planning

  • Time Management

  • Leadership

  • Service Learning

In addition to a typical JROTC curriculum, Cadets may have the opportunity to participate in several co-curricular activities offered by JROTC:

  • JROTC Leadership Challenge and Academic Bowl (JLAB): a competitive program that imparts values of leadership and citizenship while preparing for higher education milestones like college entrance exams.
  • STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Camps: a one-week college residential program at STEM labs interacting with college-level professors and graduate and undergraduate students.
  • JROTC Raider Challenge: A competitive program for JROTC Cadets in five different fitness and skill events.
  • Air Rifle Competitions: Marksmanship programs that promote teamwork, self- confidence and marksmanship skills.
  • Drill Competitions: Programs for traditional drill formations including regulation and exhibition/pageantry categories.
