AFJROTC has instructor opportunities for retired officers and NCOs. Currently JROTC has over 50 enlisted instructor and over 60 officer instructor positions open. There are 869 units world-wide and 10 new units will open up for the next school year. Over 101,000 students are enrolled in AFJROTC.
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 5 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 6 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 bachelor's degree or higher and NCOs must have a minimum of high school diploma and obtain an associate's degree within five years of employment. Additional education degrees and teacher certification are an advantage and may be required by some school districts.
