A elective in High School with the aim of Motivating Young People to be Better Citizens. Students in it, called Cadets, learn leadership skills and how to be a better citizen, they learn to appreciate the armed forces.

They're are several teams to join in it if desired, Raiders, a physical team, Drill, precision marching team, and Color Guard, a group that presents the American and the state flag at their games. Are a few examples of the team.

They have the option of going to a summer camp where they are treated like in real military, ACU's, barracks, PT, and other things are included.

All around this is a fun class that is great for anyones character, unlike what many people think, they do not recruit you into the military, although if interested the instructor can give advice. It does not train homophobia, racism or sexism.
I am a Army JROTC cadet and love it, I am in Color Guard and Raiders, its a fun class that is shot down to much by haters and morons who think they're bad ass.

A group that personifies the word "tool". Recruits strut around school acting like they're all badass and better than everyone else because of their uniform. However most of them (if not all) are pussies, so if you do indeed call them a tool to their face, don't expect them to do anything more than say something as original as "fag".
Hey look it's a group of JROTC! Fucking tools...

1. Stands for Juniors Reserve Training Corps. It is a mock-military program designed to teach kids about leadership. It allows kids to dress up and play in military uniforms while obtaining cadet ranks as they advance further into the program. It also delegates student leaders with "powers" over certain matters in regards to running a battalion while being supervised by retired military instructors.

2. Also known as "RO."

3. Allows kids to misuse their given powers for abusive and personal gain.

4. Known as "Jay rot sey" to the anti-war protesters.
The most overused description of JROTC is "RO is gay."

The one question people always ask people who are in JROTC uniforms is "Are you in RO?"

Quoted from an anti-war protester is "There are other alternatives other than Jayrotsey."

The mission of JROTC is to encourage young people to become better citizens. There's usually days for drill & ceremony, PT, uniform inspection, and academics. There are also teams that you choose to join after school such as Drill Team, Color Guard, Rifle Team, Raiders, etc. JROTC students are also usually in charge of flag detail (raising/lowering the US and state flag in front of the school) in the morning and afternoon. You get cords, ribbons, arches, and medals for joining teams, attending parades, getting good grades, etc. JROTC usually has a bunch of attractive, in-shape guys ;)
Kendra: Hey Jane, have you seen our battalion XO?
Jane: XO?
Kendra: Oh, right you're not in JROTC. Well, he's probably the hottest guy to ever walk the earth
