The 16th Jamboree-on-the-Internet (JOTI) will be held October 20–21, along with Jamboree-on-the-Air (JOTA). The JOTI and JOTA events always occur on the third full weekend in October, and the World Organization of the Scout Movement sponsors the events.

JOTI is the younger brother who turns 16 this year and is learning to drive. A national BSA committee is in place to provide direction and assistance as the 16-year-old heads down the road.

JOTI invites all youth and organizations that support Scouting to join the Internet revolution. This event utilizes computers and the Internet so that thousands of Scout groups can be contacted during the weekend. Computer usage is growing exponentially, and the Jamboree-on-the-Internet is prepared to keep pace with that growth, as well as become more user-friendly. 

Here is the official USA patch design for the 16th Jamboree-on-the-Internet.
