Welcome to the JROTC Viking Battalion website. The Junior Reserve Training Corps in Northwest High School is one of the most successful activities in all of the extra curricular available at Northwest. Each cadet is put in a position of leadership and responsibility. A cadet is looked upon differently then a regular academic student. The cadets are set with challenges towards themselves and challenges as a team. Every cadet does an annual service learning project in which they set time to take care of the community. Cadets take their education in leadership and responsibility and set themselves with their own personal goals. JROTC is here to help the new cadets and their fellow returning members and place them on a great path toward success. The Viking Battalion is a support system to help encourage the cadets into bettering themselves,their classmates, and their community.
"To Motivate Young People to be Better Citizens"
The United States Army’s Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps, or JROTC, is designed to teach high school students the value of citizenship, leadership, service to the community, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment, while instilling in them self-esteem, teamwork, and self-discipline. Its focus is reflected in its mission statement, “To motivate young people to be better citizens.”
It prepares high school students for responsible leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities, and privileges as American citizens. The program is a stimulus for promoting graduation from high school, and it provides instruction and rewarding opportunities that will benefit the student, community, and nation.
The purpose of our program is to help each student become a more successful person in life. The focus of program IS NOT THE MILITARY. Rather, JROTC uses a military structure to teach the students about citizenship, leadership, US history, discipline, self confidence, goal setting, and oral/written communications.
What a student learns in this program will benefit them in all aspects of their lives whether it’s their sports team, families, school work, church groups, etc. there is no obligation to join the military after graduation
