Marine Corps Junior ROTC

The MJROTC program has been viewed as a strong program that provides youth with much-needed skills in citizenship and leadership. Principals and school administrators also maintain positive attitudes toward MJROTC cadets because of the constant progression in character and morals for students that participate within the program. MCJROTC is at its essence a Leadership Education Program meant solely to develop character and citizenship.


6 Purposes of MCJROTC

  • The program aims at developing informed and responsible citizens. The more you learn in the MCJROTC, the more likely you are to be able to function effectively in a career in the community and in family life.
  • MCJROTC helps build character. Cadets learn about ethics, leadership, follower ship, desirable traits, and self-discipline. If they do well in the MCJROTC, they will be likely to succeed in leadership roles later-in life.
  • The program is designed to teach Cadets about the elements and requirements for national security. If they master this knowledge, they will be better equipped to make informed and intelligent decisions. Vital issues will face them and their community, state, and nation in the future. National security requirements should not be subject to the emotions or uninformed judgement of citizens. They must become knowledgeable concerning current events and issues which have a direct effect on our nation and, in turn, us.
  • MCJROTC is a program in which discipline is stressed. A good leader is one who has self-control and will remain calm and competent in difficult situations. Thus, self-discipline is required.
  • Respect for authority is of the utmost importance in any organization and in life, in general. Cadets must learn to respect theirs peers, superiors, and subordinates. Lack of respect breeds unrest and dissatisfaction. The MCJROTC will give Cadets the experience in recognizing authority and gaining the respect of others.
  • MCJROTC purports to enlighten Cadets to possible career and educational choices.
