The United States Army Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (JROTC) came into being with the passage of the National Defense Act of 1916. The mission of the JROTC program, as stated by Congress in 1916, is “to motivate young people to be better citizens.” The program is conducted at accredited secondary schools throughout the nation, by instructors who are retired Army officers and non-commissioned officers. The JROTC curriculum emphasizes the meaning of citizenship and focuses on leadership and character development. In addition to leadership studies, classroom instruction highlights the power of effective teamwork. Some of the teams that we offer, and teams that need your support, are our Raider Athletic Team, Drill Team, Marksmanship Team, Cyber-Security Team, Color Guard, Academic and Leadership Teams that compete at the national level.
Our Rotary Jogathon began in 2010 in cooperation with our local school district as a way for us to help students raise funds for their youth clubs while at the same time having a portion of the funds raised go towards helping youth in need in our community and in the world. 75% of the funds go to the school clubs from what they raise and 25% of what they raise goes to our Non-Profit 501c(3) Foundation to assist youth in need.
This is a very fun event for our youth and the community each year. Through our non profit Fullerton Rotary Foundation we use these funds to assist youth with Literacy, homelessness, foster youth, and other Title ! school needs. We are an all volunteer organization so all funds go towards assisting youth and not staff.
Additionally Rotary does assist in fighting global youth oriented diseases, and a portion of these funds from our Non-Profit Foundation are allocated to matching global grants that help fight and eradicate such disease.
