9.1. General. We will offer numerous training opportunities for cadets beyond what is taught in the classroom and in leadership laboratories. We feel that, although participation is voluntary, cadets who participate will reap many personal and leadership development benefits.
9.2. Cadet Leadership Course (CLC). This program offers cadets an opportunity to refine their leadership and communicative skills and to plan the next year's activities in a tightly controlled and monitored training environment. Cadets will live, go to class, and eat meals at a designated dining facility. Aerospace Science Instructors from the various schools attending CLC will teach academics, chaperone activities, and conduct training. Since the number of quotas per school or unit are limited, priority will be given to cadets who are filling leadership positions. The Cadet Group Commander will help the SASI/ASI develop a training schedule and training objectives to help cadets prepare for SLS.
9.3. New Cadet Orientation. Normally, this program will be conducted prior to the beginning of school in August. Invitations to attend this voluntary training will be sent to all new cadets. The Cadet Senior Staff will plan and conduct this training at Klein High School during the morning. Basic drill, uniform issuing and proper wear, personal appearance standards, and AFJROTC course objectives are just some of the training topics. The Cadet Group Commander and staff will develop a training schedule, assign training responsibilities, and accomplish an after action report and continuity folder. This orientation program is an excellent opportunity for cadets to apply their leadership skills in planning, organizing, and conducting a training program which provides a "head start" to cadets who are new to the AFJROTC program. The orientation program will address course objectives, instructor expectations, uniform and personal appearance standards, and basic drill to alleviate some of the uncertainty and misconceptions about AFJROTC. Completing the program will ensure new cadets a smooth transition to the unit when school starts in August.
9.4. Flight Commander Academy. This academy will be conducted prior to the beginning of school in August. Invitations to attend this mandatory academy will be sent to those returning cadets selected for the position of Flight Commander. Topics to be discussed during the course of the academy include goals, activities, flight reporting procedures, drill, motivation tactics, expectations, etc. Completing this academy will ensure a smooth beginning to the school year.

United States Air Force Song
Off we go into the wild blue yonder,
Climbing high into the sun;
Here they come zooming to meet our thunder,
At’em boys, Give’er the gun!
Down we dive, spouting our flame from under,
Off with one helluva roar!
We live in fame or go down in flame. Hey!
Nothing’ll stop the U.S. Air Force!
