What is BBCA?

Building Better Citizens for America is the foundation supporting Marin County's Air Force JROTC Leadership Program located at Novato High School in Marin County, California. BBCA is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit public benefit corporation created for the specific purpose of providing support for Marin County's Air Force Junior ROTC.

The Novato High School AFJROTC was the 11th out of the initial 29 programs founded nationwide in 1966 and the first one in California. BBCA was originally formed by community members when the Novato Unified School District came under such extreme budgetary pressures that they had to consider closing the program.

This program welcomes students from all Marin County and North Bay high schools.

BBCA works in conjunction with the schools and classroom instructors to ensure program effectiveness and longevity. We work with community leaders to inform the public about the benefits of this program and to raise funds to ensure it will not be lost due to cyclical crises in the California budget.

We welcome the participation of community members and parents. Anyone interested in learning more about our organization, attending a meeting or volunteering in any capacity need only contact us.
