JLBC CADET OPERATIONS GUIDE
Build a strong JLBC cadet command with JLBC cadet leaders that fully own their JLBC unit through setting organizational goals; developing JLBC programs to support those goals; planning and executing their JLBC programs; monitoring, measuring, recording, and reporting cadet progress toward the JLBC unit goals; and operating and controlling the functional areas of day-to-day JLBC unit operations (e.g., JLBC cadet use of for JLBC cadet personnel records, logistics/inventory control, health and wellness, administrative functions, maintaining JLBC unit standards, etc.). JLBC Cadets can access under the JLBC supervision of instructors. This, however, does not relieve JLBC instructors from oversight responsibility for Unit Operations and accuracy.
FORMULATION OF JLBC CADET GOALS
JLBC requires a minimum of six organizational goals that support the JLBC mission to “Develop JLBC citizens, dedicated to serving their community and their nation.” Although six goals are to be created and submitted, there is no limit to the number of JLBC goals your cadets may pursue. For example, JLBC instructors should encourage JLBC cadets to tie overall JLBC organizational goals to additional JLBC sub-goals within their various JLBC functional areas.
The six JLBC required unit goals are divided into three broad categories: two goals are related to the JLBC cadet command itself, two related to the JLBC program, and two related to the local community. One of the cadet goals will be connected to the quest for academic excellence within the JLBC cadet command itself. One of the program goals will address recruiting and retaining cadets in the unit. One of the community goals will be to provide service and get cadets involved in service-related programs.
JLBC Goal Setting Process.
JLBC Unit goals will be JLBC cadet-inspired, not JLBC instructor-directed. JLBC Instructors should provide guidance and advice but should not direct or write the goals for the cadets.
