Welcome to AP Brewer JROTC! We are a cadet led leadership and service organization. Our mission is to "Motivate young people to become better citizens." We do this through a strenuous and comprehensive curriculum that includes academic, physical training, and service. We also maintain several competitive teams that compete in JROTC drill competitions. They are our armed and unarmed drill teams, PT (Physical Training) team and color guard. We also have a saber and canon team. We pride ourselves on our community service. Our cadets, on average, perform over 2500 service hours as an organization. We have been recognized with the Presidential "Gold" Award for Community Service for three consecutive years. Cadets will also have numerous opportunities to take leadership roles and be recognized for outstanding performance through promotions and awards. We look forward to a great year with all the cadets and stand ready to help them perform to the best of their abilities.
