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.
