Jazz-02 2

North Star Youth Court, Alaska
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 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.
