Youth on the Air (YOTA) is a movement within the amateur radio community with a goal of enriching the amateur radio experience of operators under 26 years old. At YOTA summer camps, young operators will refine their skills, participate in unique experiences with radio related technologies, and meet other young hams through workshops and social events. This peer-led event is designed to foster a larger, diverse, and deeper amateur radio community amongst young people. A special event held in December (YOTA Month) provides additional opportunities for young people to refine their radio communication skills that includes an awards program and is open to all hams under 26 years old.
