NJROTC

  • District 214 Leadership Development Program Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps

    NJROTC is hosted at Wheeling 香港六合彩开奖结果2023
    900 South Elmhurst Road
    Wheeling, IL 60090-5599

    NJROTC is a course in leadership, teamwork and citizenship, using studies about the Navy as a common core. Students take the course as an elective and receive a grade that counts towards graduation and their GPA. Only the academic class and a few unit activities are mandatory, but cadets are highly encouraged to participate in the unit's 'extra-curricular' field trips, teams, and events.

    Students are NOT members of the military, though they wear a 'regulation' military uniform once each week. There is no military obligation, and students have no 'status' within the military. There are definite benefits to those students who are considering a military career, but the program is designed to help students be successful in whatever career or endeavors a student pursues.

    The unit's mission is to help develop more informed and responsible citizens. The goal is to develop young leaders.  The focus is to maximize student opportunities and prepare them for success, especially in college.
