NJC login

The JOTA-JOTI event web site offers a login facility for National JOTA-JOTI Coordinators (NJCs).

This is only intended for NJCs who are registered with WOSM as one can check on this list.

We note an increasing number of Scouts that overlook this and are trying to login to the site. We are sorry to dissappoint you as this function is really reserved to the registered NJCs.

The general sign-up for the JOTA-JOTI event will be available end July. From that moment on, all participating groups can sign up for the event. We will send newscasts as soon as this is available over our social media channels and direct communications to your National Scout Organization.

Thank you for your understanding.

your World JOTA-JOTI Team.
