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.
