CG JROTC Instructor Positions opening in 2021

Coast Guard JROTC Instructor Position openings for the 2021-2022 academic year.

The Coast Guard is pleased to announce the establishment of two new CG JROTC units: one at Lucy Beckham High School (LBHS) in Mt. Pleasant, SC, and one at Pinellas Park High School (PPHS) in Largo, FL, in the 2021-2022 academic year.  We are encouraging the highest caliber influential leaders who meet the program qualifications and have a passion for developing service-minded citizens of character to pursue the opportunity of being a CG JROTC instructor at one of these units. 


Each unit will be under the leadership of a Senior Maritime Science Instructor (SMSI), accompanied by a Maritime Science Instructor (MSI) who teaches independently of, but shares program responsibilities with, the SMSI.   The SMSI shall be a retired officer (W-2 through O-6), and the MSI shall be a retired noncommissioned officer (E-6 through E-9).  For both instructors, teaching certification or experience in secondary education will be preferred.  Coast Guard instructor certification or training experience will also be preferred.

Applicants must be certified as NJROTC instructors by the Naval Service Training Command.  Once receiving Navy JROTC instructor certification, applicants will apply directly with the school districts, going through the normal hiring process to include a background check.

Those individuals who are ultimately hired as the inaugural SMSI and MSI for the CG JROTC units at LBHS and PPHS will step into a challenging but fulfilling vocational opportunity.  Instructors will serve as high-impact role models to students, instilling citizenship, responsibility, and a deep appreciation for the Coast Guard and our nation.  Instructors will also figure as prominent and influential leaders who successfully facilitate positive relationships amongst the Coast Guard, school, and local community.
