Vashon High School JROTC program activation year was 1996. This is a character development program and builds success leaders for the future. Never deviating from the JROTC mission ("To Motivate Young People To Be Better Citizens"), the Vashon JROTC program strives to help lead young people down the past of success and opening doors of opportunity for those willing to put forth the effort of commitment.
JROTC instructors encourage and implement cadet leadership opportunities, allowing for direct peer-to-peer leadership. This style sends the message that students are willing, involved, and influences others to follow their classmates, friends and peers to do the right thing. JROTC is cadet lead and requires a team effort to build a successful peer lead program.
Together, Everyone Achieves More!
Each lesson benefits the whole student and prepares them for the tedious but conquerable life ahead. For example, cadets receive life skills training in first aid, etiquette and resume writing. Here, success begins in the JROTC program.
