This week the Army announced the closure of longstanding college ROTC units so that they may create new units at institutions in urban settings (read: minority). The Air Force will announce its consolidation plan for ROTC units in 2014 and the Navy plans similar. The focus is shifting within the military departments, I predict JROTC will eventually disappear by 2020.
I see Civil Air Patrol school squadrons, National Defense Cadet Corps, and military clubs replacing the JROTC programs in the years ahead. The Civil Air Patrol cadet program has been around longer than the AFJROTC program and I see the CAP cadet program as the air force cadet program of choice for America's youth after the closure of AFJROTC.

CAP isn't going anywhere unless McCain gets his wish anytime soon.
