USA State Networks and Coalitions

The list below of state networks, coalitions, and groups on Youth/Teen/Student/Peer Court and Peer Jury diversion programs are formal and informal.  In some states, there are one or more regional networks.  The number of formal and informal state networks and coalitions has increase from approximately five (5) in 1997, to nineteen (19) in 2021, with more expected to be established in the coming years.

In 2021, Global Youth Justice, Inc. launched a $5,000 State Mini-Grant Program, that we hope to award 15 of these Grants, to establish and strengthen formal and informal State Networks and Associations.  We will also support Tribal and Indigenous Networks and Associations of these Youth-Led Diversion Programs, and any of the U.S. Territories.

No state network or coalition listed below has any authority to mandate local communities within a state how they must operate one of these local diversion programs.  If you are interested in establishing or enhancing a regional or state network or association on these rapidly expanding local diversion programs, please contact GlobalYouthJustice@GlobalYouthJustice.org.
