The entries published in the Youth Organisations directory are published directly from information supplied by you on a form here on this website. Please read this entire page to the end before starting. The process is as follows:

  • In order to submit an entry for the Youth Organisation directory you must first register as a user on the site.
  • For this site's security and yours, please use a complex password at least 10 characters long with 2 numbers and at least one capital letter. Please do not use a password you have used for any other account. Although the registration form says ENTER YOUR DESIRED PASSWORD, the field will not accept a password that does not meet the above criteria.
  • After registering, you will receive an email requiring you to confirm your email address. This is an antispam and antibot precaution. It may take as long as 15 minutes to arrive in your inbox, depending on mail servers in use.  If you seems you haven't received it, please also check your spam folder before contacting us.  Only after you have validated your email address will you be able to log in, and only at that point will your user account allow you to proceed further. For security reasons, the link to validate your email address will work only once.  If you click on it again, you will get an Error: 403 Verification code not found.  Email address validation does not automatically log you into the site, it validates your user account only.
  • To log in, you can do so in one of two locations - at the submenu below HOME, or this page in the Staff and User Log-in location.
  • Note - Site administrators will delete user accounts of individuals and bots every month that have registered but not validated their email address. These email addresses will not be usable again for purposes of registration. So please validate your email address immediately after registration. If you have an issue with the email address validation process, let us know promptly.
  • Once you have validated your email address, please log in. Log in locations are on the Home Page, and here at this page at the Staff & User Login locations.
  • After you have logged in, please complete the form to submit a new directory entry. Note - The form will only become visible and be available after logging in.
  • If you are not logged in, following the link on this page to the form will produce an error message or possibly a 404 page failure and it will ask you to log in.
  • After logging in and successfully completing the form, your entry will not be immediately publicly visible as it requires review by site administration staff prior to publishing. You may contacted by one of them via email regarding data completeness of your entry.
  • Should any of an organisation's information change in future as it grows or evolves - or if you notice an error in your entry - please use your login and update your directory entry. It will return to moderated status for review by site administration staff.

Please use the button to register.
