World’s Most Replicated
Juvenile Justice and Youth Justice
Diversion Program

A Record 1,700+ Adult and Youth Volunteer-Driven Youth Court, Teen Court, Student Court, Peer Court and Peer Jury Positive Youth Justice Diversion Programs are now Operational on 4-Continents. These youth justice and juvenile justice diversion programs harness positive peer pressure and utilize it in a peer judgment setting to help address the anti-social, delinquent, and/or criminal behavior of youthful offenders. The ‘peer judgment’ and ‘positive peer pressure’ aspects of these programs are the two (2) primary programmatic elements which separate these youth justice and juvenile justice voluntary diversion programs from all of the others. MORE favorable Research Results and LOW operational costs of these Teen/Youth/Student/Peer Court programs are influencing the continued rapid local grass-roots expansion of these authentic juvenile justice diversion programs on a global level.

GLOBAL YOUTH JUSTICE, INC.

“Making the Time for Juvenile Crime”

If negative peer pressure is a primary factor in leading some youth to commit a crime, offense and/or violation, then positive peer pressure can be harnessed and redirected to become a positive force and lead other youth to adhere to the rule of law and become more productive citizens. These youth justice and juvenile justice voluntary diversion programs harness positive peer pressure and utilize it in a peer judgment setting to help address the anti-social, delinquent, and/or criminal behavior of youth.

The ‘peer judgment’ and ‘positive peer pressure’ aspects of these programs are the two (2) primary programmatic elements which separate these youth justice and juvenile justice voluntary diversion programs from all of the others. As of 2017, there are a Record 1,700+ Active Youth Court, Teen Court, Student Court, Peer Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs — with Hundreds More in Various Stages of Development.

IN MEMORY

Massachusetts YOUTH COURT Leader

Lisa Birkness-Tavares

Age 48

Obituary

Longtime Excellent Youth Court Director Lisa Birkness-Tavares has sadly passed away at age 48. For more than a decade, Lisa was the lead champion for volunteer-driven Youth Court diversion programs in Massachusetts. Like many adult staff who work in these Youth/Teen Court programs, it was both a professional and personal mission for Lisa. Lisa was also instrumental in helping Global Youth Justice organize and convene it’s 1st Annual Peer to Peer Summer Training in Provincetown, Cape Cod, Massachusetts, back in 2010. Lisa wisely trained an excellent staff member Nina Sousa to run the South Coast Youth Court in her absence. Thank You Lisa for ALL the children, youth and families you impacted positively with your life.

GLOBAL YOUTH JUSTICE, INC.

“Making the Time for Juvenile Crime”

If negative peer pressure is a primary factor in leading some youth to commit a crime, offense and/or violation, then positive peer pressure can be harnessed and redirected to become a positive force and lead other youth to adhere to the rule of law and become more productive citizens. These youth justice and juvenile justice voluntary diversion programs harness positive peer pressure and utilize it in a peer judgment setting to help address the anti-social, delinquent, and/or criminal behavior of youth. The ‘peer judgment’ and ‘positive peer pressure’ aspects of these programs are the two (2) primary programmatic elements which separate these youth justice and juvenile justice voluntary diversion programs from all of the others. As of 2017, there are a Record 1,700+ Active Youth Court, Teen Court, Student Court, Peer Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs — with Hundreds More in Various Stages of Development.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
North Star Youth Court, Alaska
PRESIDENT
United Youth Courts of Alaska
Like many adults, Jazzanne “Jazz” first became involved with the Youth Court program when her child was volunteering for the highly regarded North Star Youth Court in Alaska. When the former excellent Executive Director Wendy Leach retired, Jazz applied and became the new Executive Director of the North Star Youth Court and soon her peers voted to appoint her the President of the United Youth Courts of Alaska. Global Youth Justice thanks Jazz for all she does, and we wish her luck, in her efforts to bring a team of volunteer youth and adults from the North Star Youth Court to the 16th Global Youth Justice Training this June 13-15, 2017 in Cape Cod, USA.

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that on August 8, 1944 a News Article in the Evening Journal in Lewiston, Maine, USA documented plans for establishing a Youth Court Program where peers would judge their peer for minor crimes and offenses. We are unable to determine if this possible plan ever came to fruition, but we were able to get a copy of the actual News Article in the Newspaper from 1944 and we have posted it on the Global Youth Justice Website.

World’s Most Replicated

Juvenile Justice Diversion Program

A Record 1,700+ Adult and Youth Volunteer-Driven Youth Court, Teen Court, Student Court, Peer Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs are now Operational on 4-Continents. These youth justice and juvenile justice diversion programs harness positive peer pressure and utilize it in a peer judgment setting to help address the anti-social, delinquent, and/or criminal behavior of youthful offenders. The ‘peer judgment’ and ‘positive peer pressure’ aspects of these programs are the two (2) primary programmatic elements which separate these youth justice and juvenile justice voluntary diversion programs from all of the others. MORE favorable Research Results and LOW operational costs of these Teen/Youth/Student/Peer Court programs are influencing the continued rapid local grass-roots expansion of these authentic juvenile justice diversion programs on a global level.

WORLD MOST REPLICATED

Youth Justice and Juvenile Justice

Diversion Program

A Record 1,600+ Adult and Youth Volunteer-Driven Youth Court, Teen Court, Student Court, Peer Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs now Operational on 4-Continents. These youth justice and juvenile justice voluntary diversion programs harness positive peer pressure and utilize it in a peer judgment setting to help address the anti-social, delinquent, and/or criminal behavior of youth. The ‘peer judgment’ and ‘positive peer pressure’ aspects of these programs are the (2) primary programmatic elements which separate these youth justice and juvenile justice voluntary diversion programs from all of the others. More favorable empirical research reports, combined with the affordability of these volunteer-driven juvenile justice programs, are a few factors influencing the continued global expansion of these authentic diversion program on a local level.

    Global Youth Justice, Inc. was Incorporated as an International Nonprofit Corporation in 2015, with 501c3 International Charity Status scheduled for approval in 2016.  From 2009 to 2015, Global Youth Justice successfully existed as a Limited Liability Corporation, and is now in the transition process to an International Nonprofit Corporation with 501c3 Charitable Status and a Board of Directors in 2016.  Global Youth Justice champions volunteer-driven strategies and low-cost innovations which alleviate some of the world’s more pressing and costly societal problems.  Global Youth Justice strives to improve the quality of life for humans through reducing high juvenile crime rates and historic-high incarceration rates of adults locally and globally.

Global Youth Justice achieves this through favorable outcomes that result from advancing the global expansion of quality volunteer-driven youth justice and juvenile justice voluntary diversion programs often called youth court, teen court, peer court, student court, peer jury and youth peer panel.  Record numbers of volunteer youth (including former juvenile offenders) now serve as jurors, defenders, prosecutors, judges and clerk/bailiffs in local juvenile justice systems on real juvenile crimes, offenses and violations involving their peers.  A record 1,600+ plus communities around the Globe on 4 Continents now operate one of these cost-effective programs to reduce the incidence and prevent the escalation of juvenile crime and incarceration rates, which thereby reduces adult crime and incarceration rates.

While there exist greater linkages today between nations and peoples than our planet has likely ever known, we still see all around us an ever-increasing divide between the rich and poor.  This is especially transparent in the disproportionate representation of the poor and those with a disease in the juvenile justice system and criminal justice system.  These youth justice diversion programs around the globe are engaging youth in record numbers to volunteer and work side-by-side with adults who have empowered them to bridge this divide and work toward a shared vision of human dignity, greater equity, freedom, basic security and justice.  Youth must be at the forefront in the local to global struggle to overcome some of our most pressing and complex social and economic global challenges.

    If negative peer pressure is a primary factor in leading some youth to commit a crime, offense and/or violation, then positive peer pressure can be harnessed and redirected to become a positive force and lead other youth to adhere to the rule of law and become more productive citizens.   These youth justice and juvenile justice voluntary diversion programs harness positive peer pressure and utilize it in a peer judgment setting to help address the anti-social, delinquent, and/or criminal behavior of youth.  The ‘peer judgment’ and ‘positive peer pressure’ aspects of these programs are the two (2) primary programmatic elements which separate these youth justice and juvenile justice voluntary diversion programs from all of the others.
