Organized Structure

Organization and structure equals discipline. This is what the Junior Firefighter Youth Foundation’s programming instills in our students. We strive to create an environment of structure, discipline and professionalism.

We believe that using the military style formations of movement is very important in teaching students discipline. Teaching our students about various life skills they may not receive in other parts of their lives is germane to the development of a productive and positive student.

We constantly instill the mantra, “Early is on time and on time is late”. This is the first lesson in teaching promptness and timeliness. This is just a small example of the organization and structure that are conveyed to the students. Other examples of organized structure contain, time management, the need to understand all levels of government which is our civics lesson and the need to develop other soft skill sets that they will use for the rest of their lives.
