Marines JROTC-CS: Building computer science and cybersecurity education programs for Marines JROTC-CS schools nationwide.
The United States Marines JROTC-CS project, a new cohort led by CSforALL, will grow and strengthen the diversity of the tech workforce, bridging the computer science education access gap at Junior ROTC schools.
CSforALL is collaborating with the United States Marine Corps JROTC (Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps) HQ to empower nationwide high-needs schools in offering computer science (CS) and cybersecurity education programs to cadets in the Marines JROTC program. This effort complements the ongoing bi-partisan JROTC Cyber Training Act, which authorizes the DOD JROTC program to provide evidence-based computer science and cybersecurity education to all JROTC cadets. In the 2022-2023 collaboration with the Marines cohort, we aim to recruit eight Marines JROTC host high schools across different states, collectively serving up to 16,000 students overall.
There are currently five Marines JROTC host high schools in the inaugural 2022-2023 Marines JROTC-CS Cohort.

The Marines JROTC-CS Cohort is currently accepting schools in the U.S. that are high schools including grades 9–12, have a Marine Corps JROTC unit, and are interested in building AP computer Science principles and/or cybersecurity programs.
