About Marine Corps Junior ROTC

The primary goal of the Marine Corps Junior ROTC (MCJROTC) program is to familiarize cadets with basic military skills and traditions of the Marine Corps, while developing those necessary qualities of leadership;character, confidence, and self-discipline. 

Participation in the program incurs no obligation of future military service;however, the training will go a long way toward enhancing opportunity in both military and civilian careers. The future of our nation depends upon the quality of its leaders in all walks of life. The leaders of tomorrow must be fully aware of the importance of cooperation, and must possess the social and technical skills necessary to succeed in a rapidly changing world. It is this awareness of tomorrow's challenges that drives the program of the Marine Corps Junior ROTC toward leadership development.
