cadet Testimonials 

Kelsey

Class of 2023

"JROTC is a great program that teaches leadership and life skills. I have learned so much in my four years through teams and lessons."

Lexi

class of 2024

"Before I joined the program, I was extremely timid, afraid of sharing my opinions, and seriously lacking confidence. In just two years I have learned many important life skills. Including leadership, teamwork, and even financial skills. I recommend this program to anyone who wants a place to grow as a person"

Jonathon

class of 2025

"Naples JROTC’s description of providing life skills throughout the course couldn’t have been any more accurate. I have been handed the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build strong friendships, and it has proved to me that even if the road becomes bumpy, there is always a way to get through difficulties. Seeing through the stereotypes, JROTC has given me the strength and courage to become a better citizen."
