How do I get involved?

The best way to get involved is to find a local Scout group participating in JOTA-JOTI and join in with their activities.

  • Contact your local Scout unit or group to see if they will take part in this year's JOTA-JOTI programme of activities and challenges.

  • Register through your local Scout unit or group for JOTA-JOTI to be part of the exciting lineup of events.

  • Login and check out the JOTA-JOTI programme on this website to sign up for event's during the October weekend.

  • If none of those options work, you can also get active as a single Scout, through ScoutLink, or by working with a local amateur radio operator.
