25th Anniversary
Global Youth Justice Movement
1993 to 2018

The Global Youth Justice Movement will be Celebrating it’s 25th Anniversary in 2018. This text-book example of a local grass-roots movement is driven by the widely agreed upon belief that 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. The Global Youth Justice Movement is steadfast and solid, and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon — if at all. Global Youth Justice will be launching a wide range of activities and announcements in 2018 in support of Celebrating and Advancing the Global Youth Justice Movement, beginning with a Major Global Announcement in January, 2018.

“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 on 4-Continents — with Hundreds More in Various Stages of Development.

Global Youth Justice, Inc.
Global Youth Justice, Inc. Champions 1,700+ volunteer-driven and youth-led diversion programs called Teen Court, Youth Court, Peer Court, Student Court, and Peer Jury on 4-Continents, making them the most replicated juvenile justice and youth justice program around the globe. And, adults community leaders and volunteer youth from hundreds of additional communities around the globe are in various stages of implementing one of these rapidly expanding juvenile justice and youth justice diversion programs.

These affordable diversion programs, are an early step in a system of local graduated sanctions, which harness positive peer pressure and utilize it in a peer judgment setting to help address the anti-social, delinquent, and criminal behavior of youthful offenders. The peer judgment, volunteer-driven, youth-led, and positive peer pressure aspects of these diversion programs are the primary programmatic elements that separate these juvenile justice and youth justice diversion programs from all others. They are providing a much needed local alternative for communities to provide youthful offenders a second, and even third chance, of avoiding further more serious juvenile justice involvement — and future criminal justice system involvement.

Heather

YOUTH JUSTICE LEADER
Heather Ramos, Director
Caldwell School Youth/Peer Court
Idaho, USA

Shout Out to AWESOME Youth Justice Leader Heather Ramos (Bottom in Photo) from Idaho, USA. Heather had the privilege of starting this school district youth court diversion program in 2013, along with other amazing adult leaders in her community. Canyon Springs High School (Alternative High School) was able to establish the 1st Peer Court within Caldwell School District, and since then, every secondary school in the school district has a peer court. This also acts as a diversion program for the juvenile judicial courts. Heather is now the director for all of these programs, but still loves to run my own program at the alternative school.

Heather received her BA in Criminal Justice Administration in 2006 from Boise State University.

Susan

YOUTH JUSTICE LEADER
Susan Wolf, Director
Fort Worth Teen Court, Inc.
Texas, USA

The Fort Worth Teen Court, Inc. is a private, non-profit public partnership with the City of Fort Worth, Texas. The Fort Worth Junior League started our program in 1986 as a totally non-profit agency. Susan Wolf (far left in photo) was hired in August 1996 and oversaw the growth of youth offenders from over 700 per year in 1996 to 2,600 in 2004. Due to the change in juvenile laws, the numbers are now steady at between 700 and 800 youth offenders per year. Fort Worth Teen Court trains up to 50 youth volunteers per year to serve as volunteer jurors and teen attorneys.

Susan’s involvement with the Teen Court program on a state level includes 2 terms as President, 2 terms as Treasurer, and 1 term as the Vice President of the Teen Court Association of Texas; in addition to serving on the committee to plan and implement, as well as hosting several times, the annual Teen Court Mock Trial competition; and teaching other courts on starting a teen court with the Texas Municipal Courts Education Center.

Susan was born in Canton, Ohio and grew up in West Bloomfield Michigan. After graduating from Western Michigan University (WMU) with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1978 Susan and her husband moved to Fort Worth in 1981 where she held managing positions at the Arlington Girls Club for 6 years, Camp Fire for 7 years and 2 years with the Texas Department of Human Services before assuming the Coordinators Position with the Fort Worth Teen Court in 1996. Susan enjoys spending free time with her husband, 2 dogs and 2 horses. Susan has been so helpful to so many people involved with Teen Court on many different levels, and Global Youth Justice is glad to call her our friend, colleague and one of the longest serving Youth Justice Leaders in the USA.

“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 on 4-Continents — with Hundreds More in Various Stages of Development. Global Youth Justice Website

New England Networking Group

MA, NH, CT, ME, RI and VT

The New England Area of the United States of American is one of, if not the last geographic area of the USA to experience local replication of Youth Court, Teen Court, Student Court, Peer Court and Peer Jury Volunteer-Driven Diversion Programs in Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island. Rhode Island and Vermont are the final 2 states with no Youth/Teen Court Diversion Program, while the other four (4) New England States have 1-2 Youth/Teen Court Diversion Programs.

At the recent Global Youth Justice Training this past June in Cape Cod, USA an initial planning meeting took place between all of the Youth/Teen Courts in 3 of the 4 states with these diversion programs, and it was decided a New England Networking Group of Youth/Teen/Student/Peer Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs would be created to support the quality implementation and enhancement of these diversion programs in the 6 New England States, with administrative support from Global Youth Justice, Inc., which is located in the New England area of the United States of America. This new NE Coalition is the 1st Multi-State Effort in the USA, and is in the early formative stages with another meeting taking place during the 17th Global Youth Justice Training this upcoming September 26-28, 2017 in Cape Cod, MA, USA.

If your from 1 of these 6 states, and you are interested in joining/collaborating, email GlobalYouthJustice@GlobalYouthJustice.org.

Mandated Community Service

By Volunteer Canada

It is Essential for Youth Court, Teen Court, Student Court, Peer Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs to Strive to Provide a High Quality “Mandated Community Service Program” for Youthful Offenders who are Assigned Mandated Community Service Hours by their Peers in these Positive Youth Justice Diversion Programs.

Mandatory Community Service Programs and Policies require youthful offenders to perform specified number of hours of mandated service in the community in order to successfully complete requirements of these diversion programs. Mandated Community Service can and should be restorative, punitive and benefit the youthful offender, and hopefully — prevent the youthful offender from committing a subsequent crime, offense and/or violation.

While some non-profit and governmental organizations have often found it challenging to manage the administrative requirements for some of these mandated community service programs, many have found mandated community service to be a great source of new energy and beneficial to them on personal levels.

Volunteer Canada has released some excellent resources for Improving the overall quality of Mandated Community Service.

DIVERSION PROGRAMS

ARE NOT

SPECIALTY COURTS

Global Youth Justice, American Bar Association, Street Law and the Constitutional Rights Foundation have Passed and Released Resolutions Documenting Youth Court, Teen Court, Peer Court, Student Court, Peer Jury, and Youth Peer Panels are Diversion Programs and NOT Specialty Courts. Specialty Courts include Drug Courts and Juvenile Drug Courts, which are Specialized Court Dockets with a Real Judge. Thank You to several organizations such as National Center for State Courts for Removing from their Website, that these Diversion Programs are Not Specialty Courts.

With Research Documenting Reduced Recidivism Rates for Not Arresting Youth for Minor Crimes, Offenses and/or Violations, More and More Local Communities increasingly are NOT initially arresting some juveniles, pending successful completion of a referral to a Youth Court, Teen Court, Peer Court, Student Court, Peer Jury, and Youth Peer Panel Diversion Programs, these Diversion Programs are also Referred to as “Pre-Diversion” and Certainly Not a Special Court.

Global Youth Justice and the American Bar Association among others, are Very Supportive of Some Specialty Courts, but let us not confuse them with Diversion Programs and Pre-Diversion Programs.

Juvenile Justice and Youth Justice Program WORKS

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, with Local Communities in the USA already making them the most replicated Juvenile Justice Program in USA since the 1st Juvenile Court in 1899 in Cook County, Illinois. 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.

New Hampshire’s Merrimack TEEN COURT Director Kristen Ivon and Connecticut’s Project YOUTH COURT Director Jane Michaud w/Global Youth Justice CEO Scott Peterson in Provincetown, Cape Cod, USA at the 2017 Global Youth Justice Training in June, 2017. Both Connecticut and New Hampshire are among the final few states with only 1 Youth/Teen Court. Kristen and Jane are doing an awesome job, are wonderful human beings, and both are striving to make these Volunteer-Driven Positive Youth Justice Diversion Programs even better, which hopefully leads to new volunteer-driven Youth Court and Teen Court Diversion Programs in CT and NH.

TRANSITION COMPLETED

Global Youth Justice, Inc.

501(c)(3) Application Submitted

Global Youth Justice, Inc. submitted it’s 501(c)(3) Application in June, 2017. This was the final step, over a 2-year period to transition Global Youth Justice, Inc. as an International Nonprofit Corporation, from a Philanthropic LLC Model Incorporated in 2009. Global Youth Justice, Inc. has added (5) of (15) founding board members, expanded services, increased trainings, formalized accounting practices, implemented new social media outlets, updated it’s database and much more in recent months. Watch for the launch of a new GlobalYouthJustice.org website and much more before the end of 2017 — and beyond, as Global Youth Justice continues championing the World’s Most Replicated Juvenile Justice and Youth Justice Diversion Programs called Youth Court, Teen Court, Student court, Peer Court, Peer Jury and Youth Peer Court. New Global Youth Justice Website Launches September, 2017.

Amy Fialkowski

YOUTH COURT LEADER
Amy Fialkowski, Director
Wyoming County Youth Court
NEW YORK

In 2011, Youth Court Leader Amy Fialkowski began serving part-time as Wyoming County Youth Court Coordinator at the Wyoming Youth Bureau in New York State. In 2014, Amy became a full-time employee at the Wyoming Youth Bureau, and she was able to further advance the Youth Court Diversion Program and establish the Wyoming County Bully Task Force in Wyoming County, New York. Amy wisely incorporated Bulling into the Wyoming County Youth Court, and created a Bully Court – the 1st of its kind in New York State. Like the Long Island area of New York, the Western Area of New York for quite a few years has been attracting local Youth Court leaders, who met on a regional basis, more often than a state level, for practical and other reasons. Since 2012, Amy continues to be a leader in the Western Region of New York, where Youth Court Leaders have now convened an Annual Summit for the Awesome Youth Court Youth Volunteers for 6-Years in a Row, and Amy volunteered to take on a lead role in 2017, with the establishment of the Western New York Regional Association of Youth Courts. Amy also recently attended the 15th Global Youth Justice Training in Cape Cod, USA, where she made time to make an excellent presentation, which helped those attending get new ideas to Establish or Enhance a Youth Court Diversion Program. Thanks for All You Do Amy!!!

“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 on 4-Continents — with Hundreds More in Various Stages of Development. Global Youth Justice Website

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 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.

OBITUARY

CBOxqPaU8AABsqf

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.

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.
