GOAL of 9/11 DAY

In Observance of the 20th Anniversary of the 9/11 Attacks, 9/11 Day of National Service will Transform the Anniversary of 9/11 into a Day of Unity and “Good Deeds” to help those most in need.  The Goal of 9/11 Day of National Service is to Mobilize Volunteer Youth and Adults in America, and around the Globe, to perform “100 Million Good Deeds” in Remembrance and Tribute for the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 Day.

GLOBAL YOUTH JUSTICE, INC. and 9/11 DAY

Global Youth Justice, Inc. has been awarded a competitive three (3) year federal grant from AmeriCorps for purposes of being a National Partner of 9/11 Day of National Service, beginning in 2021, with the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 Day of National Service on September 11, 2021.

The Global Youth Justice Network comprises 1800+ Youth/Teen/Student/Peer Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs in Communities, Tribes, and Schools — in 47 USA States, 25+ Tribes, District of Columbia, 11 Countries, and 1 Dual-Island Nation.  These Youth-Led and Volunteer-Driven Diversion Programs are the most replicated local juvenile justice program in America, since the establishment of the 1st Juvenile Court in 1899 in Illinois, USA.

And, since they are volunteer-driven, they are now already a Top 5 youth service opportunity for teens in America, and they are the #1 essential youth service opportunity in America.  And, since juvenile crimes occur daily all over America, they provide year-round continual youth service opportunities – instead of being only episodic, and therefore, these diversion programs are highly regarded for their civic, service, rule of law, and other youth development benefits, beyond their primary purpose – to divert youthful offenders from the justice system. And, given much needed justice reform efforts in America, our unique Volunteer-Driven Youth/Teen/Student/Peer Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs are experiencing an even greater surge in their establishment and expansion.

OPPORTUNITY #1

Applicants Volunteer to Undertake 2 Key Activities

1st KEY ACTIVITY

On 9/11 Day — “9/11 Flag of Honor Across America Project” and 1+ Volunteer Management Activity.

On September 11th, 2021 (Saturday) –   Youth/Teen/Student/Peer Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs in America will gather around community flagpoles, or another high-profile location, and they will raise the Official 9/11 Day Flag of Honor, and each will read a minimum of 30 names of the souls lost on September 11, 2001 – so all 2,982 souls lost that tragic day, will be remembered.  

This 9/11 Day Flag of Honor was created by the Flag of Heroes project. The Flag of Honor contains the 2982 names of all those who perished in the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, Somerset County (Pennsylvania), United flights 175 and 93 and American flights 11 and 77. The flag gives the victims’ families, friends, and all of America and the world, a symbol that will forever memorialize all the men, women and children lost that dreadful day.  Official 9/11 Day Sites will involve adults and youth (volunteers and/or youthful offenders) involved in their local volunteer-driven and youth-led Diversion Programs called Youth/Teen/Peer/Student Court and Peer Jury.  Official Sites should also include other adults and youth, such as elected and appointed officials, press, donors, civic groups, and anyone else they feel is appropriate in making this a special, and high-profile community event.  

In applying for this opportunity, we are doing this as a team across America – and you commit to a minimum of 30 names, but your community can read 100 names, 200 names, or all 2,982 on 9/11 Day of National Service – on September 11th, 2021.  Official 9/11 Day Sites will also be provided with Educational Materials and Helpful Information, that can be read before and/or after reading the names of the souls lost that tragic day.   

And, official 9/11 Day Sites will undertake one or more Volunteer Management R-TORR Activities such as Recruiting, Training, Organizing, Recognizing, and Retaining Justice Volunteers – both Youth and Adults, in your Youth/Teen/Student/Peer Court and Peer Jury Diversion Program. 

2ND KEY ACTIVITY

The R-TORR Volunteer Management Peer-to-Peer Sharing Year-Round Project

The 25 Official 9/11 Day Sites will strive to improve their “Volunteer Management” of Youth and Adults, as it relates to annual Recruiting, Training, Organizing, Recognizing, and Retaining Justice Volunteers in Youth/Teen/Student/Peer Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs.  Global Youth Justice, Inc. will compile and organize what these 25 Local 9/11 Day Sites are doing for Volunteer Management, and share it with 1800+ of our Diversion Programs in America and Around the Globe.  Based on the quantity and quality of applicants, we will strive to select applicants which are representative of the 3 most common models (youth judge, adult judge, and hybrid peer jury models). 

All applicants selected, must be models which provide for an advocate or defender for the youthful offender, as it is critical that they have support and representation in defending themselves.  We will also select sites in various setting such as urban, tribal, rural, school, and suburban, as it is important to collect volunteer management practices representative of what takes place.

And, official 9/11 Day Sites will undertake one or more Volunteer Management R-TORR Activities such as Recruiting, Training, Organizing, Recognizing, and Retaining Justice Volunteers – both Youth and Adults, in your Youth/Teen/Student/Peer Court and Peer Jury Diversion Program. 

State Projects must include a minimum of five (5) local Youth/Teen/Student/Peer Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs in the 1st Key Activity, and preferably many more, as out of 47 States with out diversion programs — it ranges from 5 of our diversion programs, up to 75+ of our diversion programs in some states.

2nd KEY ACTIVITY

Before the end of 2021, State Applicants will convene a State “Build Back Better with Justice Volunteers State Training” in 2021.

The Global COVID-19 Pandemic has disrupted Justice Systems just about everywhere, and an inability to meet in-person has caused disruptions in 100’s and 100’s of our local Youth/Teen/Student/Peer Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs in America, and around the globe.  And, the need for Justice Reforms is even more front and center – and it is critical society reduce arrest and incarceration rates of youth and adults – especially those who commit minor crimes, offenses, and violations.

Although our network of local Youth/Teen/Student/Peer Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs are already the most replicated juvenile justice diversion program in America, and these diversion programs are spreading globally – it is estimated that only 5% percent of communities and tribes have operational local Youth/Teen/Student/Peer Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs.  And, the Goal of 9/11 Day of National Service is to Mobilize Volunteer Youth and Adults in America, and around the Globe, to perform “100 Million Good Deeds” in Remembrance and Tribute for the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 Day.

With both these priorities front and center in this opportunity, we are seeking state applicants to convene a 1-Day Training that focuses on two (2) primary agenda items: (1) ½ Day Training on Establishing a Youth/Teen/Student/Peer Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs; and (2) ½ Day Training that Focuses on the Driving Force behind these rapidly expanding Diversion Programs – Volunteers, which should focus on Volunteer-Management areas such as R-TORR (Recruit, Training, Organize, Recognize, and Retaining Youth and Adult Volunteers). These Trainings are not only for our existing programs, but for new communities, and tribes, seeking to establish one of these diversion programs.

We are also open to other innovative ideas for a State Training on Youth/Teen/Student/Peer Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs, which focus on Establishment/Enhancement, and Volunteer-Management.  Global Youth Justice, Inc. and our extensive networks will market these Five (5) Trainings, and bring increased attention, and support to the Five (5) States Selected.  We also encourage applicants to allow 25 percent of the registration slots, to be from communities and tribes in neighboring states, but it is not mandatory.  Please Note:  We will not accept applications for “Virtual Trainings”, and “In-Person Trainings” will adhere to CDC Safety Guidelines, and applicants can NOT Require COVID-19 Vaccination ID Cards — as this is the policy for Global Youth Justice, Inc. Trainings and Conferences.

All questions regarding the 130 Opportunities and Grants from Global Youth Justice, Inc. will be sent to 911Day@GlobalYouthJustice.org and we will respond in 48 hours or Less.

The Global Youth Justice Network is Excited about this Sacred, and Special Opportunity, to Lead 9/11 Day of National Service Activities to Honor the nearly 3,000 Souls lost on that Tragic Day, thousands more Souls who have died since 9/11 Day from injuries and diseases related to that Tragic Day, and thousands and thousands of 9/11 Day Heroes.

FYI PLEASE do not Donate to us @ Global Youth Justice, Inc. for 9/11 Day — We have received many inquiries from individuals and organizations wanting to Donate to this Global Youth Justice 9/11 Day Project. PLEASE do not do that on our website, or any other way for this 9/11 Day Project, as while that is VERY thoughtful, we have already reimbursed three (3) 9/11 Day Donations (and sent them the link to 9/11 Day, Inc. to Donate), as we are not accepting 9/11 Day Donations, as it just does not seem right to us. Instead Global Youth Justice, Inc. is directing everyone to Donate to 9/11 Day, Inc. and 9/11 Memorial & Museum. We have spoken with senior leadership at both of these Official 9/11 Day Organizations, and both have Donation Links on their websites (which are listed above this). The Flight 93 Memorial and Pentagon Memorial also have donation opportunities, and we included those links above.

Thank You,

Team Global Youth Justice, Inc.
