About the Program
AFJROTC provides citizenship training and an aerospace science program for high school students.  Secondary school students who enroll in the AFJROTC program are offered a wide variety of curricular and co-curricular activities. The program explores the historic and scientific aspects of aerospace technology and teaches high school students self-reliance, self-discipline, and other leadership characteristics. Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics (STEM) concepts are also an important part of this world class program.
The AFJROTC program is open to 9th-12th grade students who are citizens of the United States. The program is a citizenship program and not chartered as a recruiting program for the military services and those students who participate in AFJROTC do not incur any obligation to the Air Force. 

AFJROTC objectives are to educate and train high school cadets in citizenship and life skills; promote community service; instill a sense responsibility, develop character, leadership, and self-discipline through education and instruction in air and space fundamentals.

Projects range from working with national organizations like the March of Dimes, Muscular Dystrophy, the National Red Ribbon Campaign, and Special Olympics, to participating in local community projects such as cleaning and refurbishing cemeteries and building parks.
