If your child is interested in enrolling in JROTC, contact the JROTC Department at Punahou School. The magnet JROTC program is open to any high school student whose school does not offer JROTC. The mission of JROTC is to motivate young people to be better citizens. We do not recruit young people to join the military.

I'm currently a cadet in the JROTC program and i can honestly say that it really has been worth it to join JROTC. I joined alone as a freshman without knowing anyone in or anything about the program and in these past 3 years i have gained too many things to count. First and foremost I have met tons of people i would normally never get the chance to know. People from different schools and grades and groups who would never meet are put in challenging situations that need teamwork and leadership to pull them through. In all of this we steadily learn how to cooperate with people and inevitably "become a better citizen," which is to me my second greatest gain in JROTC. A few other fun things about the program are that we do cool stuff like spin rifles, twirl sabers, shoot air rifles, and carry our national and state colors in a number of noteworthy events. And we get free food:)
well I've said enough so i'll finish with this; JROTC does not teach citizenship, but instead it lets us cadets learn about it ourselves. The program gives us tons of opportunities to interact with tons of different kinds of people in tons of different kinds of situations, and it is from this gigantic pile of cooperation that we pull out the unexplainable set of skills we need to make that "better citizen" out of ourselves.
