There are about 890 Air Force Junior ROTC units with more than 120,000 cadets in high schools across the United States and select Department of Defense Dependent Schools in Europe and the Pacific as well as public schools in Puerto Rico and Guam. The Air Force plans to continue expansion efforts to 955 units by 2020 when funds are available, with expected enrollment of over 135,000 cadets.

    Organization: Air Force JROTC is not a recruiting tool for the military servicesl students who participate in AFJROTC do not incur any obligation to the Air Force. 

    Objectives: The objectives of Air Force Junior ROTC are to educate and train high school cadets in citizenship and life skills; promote community service; instill a sense responsibility; develop character and self-discipline through education and instruction in air and space fundamentals and the Air Force’s core values of “integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do.”

  • What is Girls Go CyberStart?

    Girls Go CyberStart is a fun and interactive online program composed of digital challenges to introduce high school girls to cybersecurity. Over 10,000 high school girls have taken part in the Girls Go CyberStart program so far and loved it!

    Key stages and dates

    Registration began 2 Dec 2019

    Girls Go CyberStart is made up of three stages. You start by participating in a fun online tryout called CyberStart Assess. Clubs that meet the program's selection criteria will move on to CyberStart Game where they'll master all of the techniques needed to compete in an online game of Capture the Flag in CyberStart Compete!

     

    CyberStart Assess

    13 Jan 2020 - 14 Feb 2020

    Initial assessment invites students to take on a set of fun, interactive challenges representive of realistic scenarios and threats faced by cybersecurity practitioners.

    CyberStart Game logo

    CyberStart Game

    10 Feb 2020 - 17 Apr 2020

    Focusing on self-learning, CyberStart Game uses hundreds of online challenges to develop interest in security disciplines, such as Linux, cryptography and programming.

    "As the game progresses, students visibly develop the drive to solve that next challenge, and then the next. The motivation to research, collaborate, 'try-fail-try-fail-try and try again' is a skill set that will serve them in whatever career they pursue."

    Students will take on the role of a security agent, gathering information, cracking codes, finding security flaws and dissecting a cyber criminal's digital trail, using our in-tool resources, working together, and researching techniques to advance to the next challenge.

    National Championship for Girls Go CyberStart

    23 Apr 2020 - 24 Apr 2020

    Students will also be able to take part in an online Capture the Flag competition where they’ll battle against each other and the clock to solve challenges!

    • Currently, there are many cadets who have indicated interest in attending MCOLS, so the first 14 qualified cadets are "go" status and the remaining are "standby."

    • Any "go" cadet who resigns the slot or fails to meet the requirements below will be changed to "standby," and a qualified standby cadet will advance to "go" status.

    PARENTS & CADETS--

    WITH NO RETURN CONTACT WITH OUR PREVIOUS VENDOR, WE HAVE BEGUN DIALOGUE WITH LIFETOUCH FOR NEW CADET PHOTOS. 

    THE TENTATIVE PHOTO DATES WILL BE 4 and 5 FEBRUARY.

    Your cadet will need to be wearing a pristine service dress jacket and have exceptional grooming--that means exceptional. After all, photos are forever.

  • MCOLS PFT TESTING 26-27 MAR

    RE-TEST 30 APR - 01 MAY

    MCOLS Candidates will be tested twice in May--they must meet/exceed these standards to maintain their status in the "go" line up.

    If they do NOT meet standards, they will go on "stand-by" status, and their candidacy MAY be terminated.

    MCOLS is a strenuous, stressful physical experience. Home units should ensure MCOLS attendees meet a minimum standard of physical fitness. Cadets should train so that they can endure the physical rigors of MCOLS.

    Cadets who can meet the following MCOLS PFT standards in before they arrive usually have no problems. 

    MCOLS PFT STANDARDS (from MCOLS Guide, p. 36, Table 1)

         Female                            Male

    Mile Run                   11:00                              9:30

    Sit-Ups (1 min)          25                                   25

    Push-Ups (1 min)      11                                   20
