RESEARCH and DATA COLLECTION

Youth/Teen/Student/Peer Court and Peer Jury

Global Youth Justice, Inc.

A Record 1,800+ Adult and Youth Volunteer-Driven Youth Court, Teen Court, Student Court, Peer Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs are now Operational on 5-Continents, with Local Communities in the USA already making them the most replicated Juvenile Justice Program in USA since the 1st Juvenile Court in 1899 in Cook County, Illinois. These youth justice and juvenile justice 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 youthful offenders.

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. MORE favorable Research Results and LOW operational costs of these Teen/Youth/Student/Peer Court programs are influencing the continued rapid local grass-roots expansion of these authentic juvenile justice and youth justice diversion programs on a global level.   Below are the primary research reports on these unique diversion programs.
