American Bar Association
House of Delegates Passes Resolution
Youth/Teen/Student/Peer Court

RESOLVED, That the American Bar Association (ABA) urges federal, state, territorial, and local governments to create and provide appropriate support for Youth or Teen Courts that, through a nondiscriminatory peer-driven restorative justice process involving family members, diverts youth from the formal consequences of juvenile court petitions, proceedings, adjudications, or juvenile justice sanctions by:

(A) Providing civic education for all participants that builds respect for their rule of law and the legal process, including mentorship and community service opportunities; (B) Permitting program referrals from prosecutors, probation departments and police, as well as from the courts, and not limiting program eligibility to first-time offenders; (C) Encouraging judges, lawyers, law students, civic organizations and businesses to recruit youth volunteers and to provide training, other assistance and support to create, sustain and promote programs; and (D) Supporting national, state, and local research and evaluation on all aspects of these programs.

“Positive Peer Pressure Philosophy”

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. Youth Justice and Juvenile Justice voluntary diversion programs called Youth/Teen/Student/Peer Court and Peer Jury 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.

“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. Adult community leaders are wisely driving the rapid implementation of these youth-led diversion programs. They are volunteer-driven, affordable, and critical to reducing justice system involvement. As of 2017, there are a Record 1,800+ Active Youth Court, Teen Court, Student Court, Peer Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs on 4-Continents, hundreds more in various stages of Development, and hundreds more we likely don’t know about. Global Youth Justice Website
