A new program, Student Emergency Response Volunteers (SERV), is being put forth as an alternative to Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) in San Francisco Schools.
“Commissioners [Norman] Yee and I proposed this program so students can create emergency disaster plans for their families. They will learn CPR, first aid, and HAMM radio skills.”
Per popular District One Supervisorial candidate Eric Mar:
“This is a great example of real leadership opportunities we can provide to high school students to replace the military-run JROTC program as it is phased out.”
Eric Mar and Jane Kim speaking out yesterday.
JROTC remains popular with many parents – maybe they’ll see SERV as a viable alternative?
