JROTC has one of the most rigorous and effective career-related leadership curriculums. JROTC’s leadership development curriculum begins with instruction about leadership theory, which teaches Cadets motivational principles, individual and group management practices, decision-making skills, and interpersonal relations. As JROTC Cadets progress through the program, they experience opportunities to lead other Cadets. Cadets follow a chain of command, enabling lower classmen to observe the upper classmen lead, teach and make decisions, before assuming the role themselves. Observing leaders in action enables Cadets to experience authentic responsibility for others, which can instill in them genuine concern for the success of the larger group; a key component of effective leadership!
