    Course Description
    The mission of AFJROTC is to develop citizens of character dedicated to serving their nation and community.  To achieve this, the program strives to develop good citizenship traits, encourage self-discipline and responsibility for personal actions, and assist students in setting and achieving personal goals.  We accomplish this through a combination of conventional class work, recognition and leadership training.  **Participation in AFJROTC does not commit or obligate the student to military service.**
    Course Pre-requisites/Co-requisites
    Each student and parent must read and sign the Statement of Understanding and Physical Training release form. Without these forms on file, the student cannot participate in the AFJROTC program.

    Student Learning Objectives
    Students are measured on their ability to work as a team while developing their leadership/followership skills.  They will be graded on class participation, uniform wear to include PT uniform, PT participation, and textbook assignments. They will also be given multiple group assignments lots of public speaking practice.

    Instructional Methods and Philosophies
    AFJROTC is a student led program, this means that I will give the students options as to what they would like to learn and allow them to work together in order to meet the objectives. I believe in having an all-inclusive classroom free from hazing and bullying. Each student will be respected and allowed to discuss topics without fear of judgment or reprisal as long as they are not confrontational or mean spirited. I will act as a guide for them to discover and strengthen their personal traits as we work towards developing new ones. I will ask students to step out of their comfort zone in an attempt to better prepare them for life after high school.

    Methods of Evaluation
    Students will be evaluated on written and verbal assignments. I will notify you if I feel that you are in danger of failing the class and give you opportunities to raise your grade. However, if you refuse to wear the uniform, stay within grooming standards, or participate in PT, you will automatically fail the class.
