AF JROTC instructors needed
Air Force Junior ROTC has instructor opportunities for retired or soon-to-be retired officers and NCOs. Currently AFJROTC has over 60 instructor positions open in high schools around the country. AFJROTC is in the process of expanding and will be opening up to 75 new units by beginning of the 2006 school year.
Teaching AF JROTC in a high school is an excellent opportunity to share your experience and leadership skills with America's future leaders as well as imparting the Air Force's Core Values.
All applicants must be retired from active duty less than five years from the effective date of employment (may be waived in exceptional cases). If still on active duty, applicants must have applied for retirement to be effective within six months.
Instructors must meet Air Force weight/body fat standards and have high standards of military bearing, appearance and moral character. Officers must have a baccalaureate degree or higher from an accredited institution. NCOs must have a high school diploma or equivalent (A minimum of an associate's degree will be required in the near future).
Instructors wear the Air Force uniform and are expected to maintain appearance standards. In addition, they receive, at a minimum, a salary equal to the difference between their retirement pay and their active-duty pay and allowances.
