Air Force ROTC is a training program designed to prepare college students for leadership roles in the United States Air Force. Offered at colleges and universities across the United States, AFROTC teaches students about leadership, management, public speaking, the history of air power, the role of the military in today’s society, and many other subjects. Students enrolled in AFROTC take academic classes designed to teach the fundamentals of being an Air Force Officer.

Students also participate in Leadership Laboratory (Lead Lab) to give them hands on skills needed to succeed as an Air Force Officer. Lead Lab is run by cadets who set up the lesson plans, prepare the briefings, and execute the curriculum, with our staff to aid them along the way.
