Global Youth Justice Ambassador

 

 

Interested in serving as a Global Youth Justice Ambassador?

The Global Youth Justice Movement taking hold around the world continues to involve increasing numbers of youth and adults each and every year and in a wide range of roles.  The addition of this new role – that of a “Global Youth Justice Ambassador” will further enhance the widening and coordinated effort of Global Youth Justice to have a favorable impact on societies around the world.  Global Youth Justice Ambassadors are adults and youth who are currently, have been involved with, and even those never involved with a local youth court, teen court, peer court, student court, youth peer jury, and/or youth peer panel around the world

 

Global Youth Justice Ambassadors are youth and adults from around the world who volunteer to serve with Global Youth Justice in our effort to reduce crime and incarceration rates around the world.  We achieve this largely though promoting the global expansion of quality juvenile justice programs commonly referred to as youth court, teen court, peer court, student court, youth peer jury, and youth peer panel.  Global Youth Justice Ambassadors are designated by Global Youth Justice and they agree to initially serve in this capacity for a minimum one (1) year.  At Global Youth Justice we encourage youth and adults to consider serving in this capacity for multiple years.  We believe for many youth and adults around the world this will become one of those special causes you carry with you in your spirit for many years to come.

 

In 2010, the role of Global Youth Justice Ambassador was established by Scott Bernard Peterson to further advance the Global Youth Justice Movement.  Global Youth Justice Ambassadors will serve in a leadership capacity and strive to achieve the 2020 plan objectives, and support the mission and vision of Global Youth Justice, LLC.  We look forward to receiving applications from youth and adults who have made the decision to serve as a community and social activist.  Social change is rare and together our actions will resonate favorably for years to come.  We can and will reduce crime and incarceration rates around the world, and as a result, many of our fellow human beings will have an improved quality of life.  At Global Youth Justice we hope to attract youth and adults from around the world who want to serve as a Global Youth Justice Ambassador for purposes of wanting to be a bigger piece of the puzzle in God’s plan.

 

What are the expectations of someone interested in serving as a Global Youth Justice Ambassador?

Volunteers from around the world interested in applying to become a Global Youth Justice Ambassador should approach this new role with a healthy attitude and a willingness to allocate a few hours or more each month in support of advancing the Global Youth Justice Movement.   You could even say the time commitment is similar to that of becoming a mentor.  You should be willing and able to allocate a few hours each month, and possibly more, when you are working on a specific project or task in support of advancing the Global Youth Justice Movement.  As a Global Youth Justice Ambassador, you make the initial decision to empower yourself to serve in this new “role” and come with ideas and strategies that will advance the Global Youth Justice Movement.  We are here to support you and you ideas and strategies.  Please do email us anytime at Ambassador@GlobalYouthJustice.org.

 

We encourage you to involve others in your on-going effort to come up with these ideas and strategies to advance the Global Youth Justice Movement.  At Global Youth Justice we realize some months you will not have any ideas or time, and at other times, you may have a dozen ideas in just one month and more free time to volunteer.  This is why we encourage you to serve in this capacity for one year or more.  This new “Global Youth Justice Ambassador” role many become a title or position you carry with you for years to come.  Many of the adults and youth involved today in the Global Youth Justice Movement have been involved for years.  This is a testament to the infectious experience that comes with being involved in a local youth justice program often referred to as “teen court” or “youth court”.    These youth justice programs allow so many youth and adult to experience making a difference and this because they are.  Again, we encourage you to empower yourself and take on the “role” and “title” of Global Youth Justice Ambassador.

 

There is no set limit on the number of youth and/or adults who may serve in the official capacity of a Global Youth Justice Ambassador.  A Global Youth Justice Ambassadors is anyone twelve (12) years of age or older.  A Global Youth Justice Ambassador is someone living on our planet earth who has made a decision to begin or renew their decision to empower themselves for purposes of helping to alleviate some of the world's most pressing social problems.   Reducing crime and incarceration rates around the world is our primary focus at Global Youth Justice.  We recruit and designate Global Youth Justice Ambassadors to join us in reducing crime and incarceration rates around the globe. As we reduce crime and incarceration rates we improve the society in which we live and we improve the lives of our fellow human beings

 

At Global Youth Justice we empower you to assume a leadership role and alone and/or with a group you have convened.   We want you to be the one come up with creative projects, actions, events and trainings, programs, campaigns, advocacy initiatives, public and community awareness ideas, and much more.  A Global Youth Justice Ambassador does more than they were doing prior to becoming a Global Youth Justice Ambassador.   These individuals act, advocate and empower themselves to assume a leadership role in advancing the Global Youth Justice Movement.
