Central's Navy Junior ROTC Cadet Leadership Training

by CECILIA PANNONE

For 16 consecutive years, Central’s NJROTC cadets have been dragged from their comfort zones and thrown into the trenches. For a weekend, full of leadership training with the opportunity to develop each other’s strengths, abilities, and reasoning skills. One of several purposes of this Mini Boot Camp was to learn the position skills necessary for platoon commander, guide, and squad leaders. In order to correctly demonstrate to their subordinates back in the unit. The other developed skills dealt with team problem solving and collaboration, rather than individual workings. Florida Elks Youth Camp allowed the cadets with the perfect opportunity to do this, the obstacle courses challenged the paired off cadets by testing their previously developed skills, as well as improving it throughout each course. A total of 75 cadets attended, all of which hold a leadership position. Cadets varying from squad leaders and up; referring to those individuals in charge of 5 to 300 cadets. The leadership personnel have grown closer, through team bonding exercises, and now are properly equipped to demonstrate their individual skill. This provides an advancement for our NJROTC to run more smoothly and efficiently in the year to come.
