Air Force JROTC Cadet Leadership Course

The Air Force JROTC (AFJROTC) Cadet Leadership Course (CLC) is an optional summer program that teaches AFJROTC cadet’s aspects of citizenship and leadership in a highly structured and focused instructional environment. Its mission is to promote this development by preparing cadets for leadership roles in their units, schools, and local communities. As such, the activities during CLC should stress the following: team building, leadership, and respect for authority, responsible citizenship, personal character, academic achievement, health, and community service.

The North Texas AFJROTC CLC is held in Denton, Texas at Texas Woman's University and hosted by Denton ISD's Guyer High School, AFJROTC TX-20056. Fourteen Dallas-Fort Worth Area AFJROTC units attended this overnight CLC from 30 May - 3 June 2023 and over 230 cadets graduated the 5-day course. Units attending: Braswell, Burleson, Cedar Hill, Central-Keller, Corsicana, Denton, Forney, Guyer, Marcus, Rowlett, Ryan, Saginaw, Timberview, and Wylie East. In addition to the AFJROTC instructors from each of the listed high school units, 25 critical college-level AFROTC cadet training officers were provided from both the University of North Texas' AFROTC Detachment 835 and Oklahoma's AFROTC Detachment 675.
