The ARMY JROTC Mission
JROTC -- This program prepares high school students for leadership roles while making them
aware of their rights, responsibilities, and privileges as American citizens. It is a stimuli for promoting graduation from
high school and it provides instruction and rewarding opportunities which will benefit the student, community, and nation.
LET I -- The mission of Leadership Education and Training (LET) is to motivate first year JROTC cadets to be better
citizens. To accomplish this purpose, the text discusses citizenship, leadership, and a number of other courses designed to
help the cadets succeed in high school and after graduation. Cadets wear uniforms one time each week. Extracurricular activities
include: Providing color guards, eating at concession stands, participating in community parades, drill and rifle teams.
LET II -- The second year of Leadership Education and Training provides more details about leadership situations.
The program is split into units including: Techniques of Communication, Leadership, Cadet Challenge, Leadership Lab, First
Aid, Map Reading, History, Your American Citizenship, Career Opportunities, and Role of the U.S. Army. The wearing of the
uniform and extracurricular activities are the same as for LET I.
LET III -- The third year of Leadership Education and Training provides still more leadership situations. In this
year students will not only be more involved as teacher and leaders within the cadet battalion, but they will also do more
independent studies in the areas of communication, leader, first aid, history, map reading, career opportunities, and technology
awareness. The wearing of the uniform and the extracurricular activities are the same as for LET I.
LET IV --Fourth-year cadets are responsible for the daily cadet administration and perform as commanders
and staff officers. They act as assistant instructors in some subject areas for other JROTC classes. They continue
to develop their leadership skills and plan special unit events such as the military ball or the annual awards banquet.
