Welcome to Dover High School and the Career Technical Center Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps otherwise known as NJROTC. My hope is that you come away from this program with an understanding of the following mission.
Helping Today's Youth Meet Life's Challenges: The Dover High School NJROTC program mission is to instill in students the values of citizenship, leadership, service to others, personal responsibility and a sense of accomplishment. The goal of the program is to develop a student mentally, morally, and physically so they are prepared to successfully navigate their future paths in life. Everything we do is based in the fundamental core of:
1. Citizenship comes first
2. Leadership comes second
3. Academic excellence all the time
NJROTC is designed to create favorable attitudes, impressions, and skill sets for students as they set a path for success in post-secondary education, entering the technical workforce, or service in the military. A solid foundation that develops core competencies in leadership, management, policy analysis, human resources management, and information technology is provided to each student.
The program is taught by instructors who are retired Senior Naval Officers that are certified in developing the leadership continuum. The curriculum is developed and revised constantly to keep pace with the changing climate. Building on a progression from followership to leadership the four development stages are:
1.Introduction to Life Skills and Leadership
2.Developing core values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment
3.Foundations of Management Skills
4.Applications of Leadership and Ethics
