Fair Registration Process: Registration is fairly approved, based on a first registered and paid, first approved process.  Participants book resort rooms after they are registered, paid, and have been provided with the code to book rooms at reduced rates.  The Tuscany Suites only charges a one (1) night deposit to book resort rooms, however, participants can pay for all nights at once, when reserving resort rooms.  Most participants arrive on Monday and depart on Friday, however, about 25% of participants arrive early and/or depart later for personal time.  Registration is limited to 100 participants for this Global Youth Justice Training.

Training Description:  Global Youth Justice Champions 1,800+ volunteer-driven youth justice and juvenile justice diversion programs called Teen/Youth/Student/Peer Court and Peer Jury on 5-Continents, making it the most replicated juvenile justice and youth justice program around the globe.  And, adults and youth from hundreds of additional communities around the globe are in various stages of implementing one of these rapidly expanding affordable youth-led juvenile justice and youth justice diversion programs.

These rapidly expanding local volunteer-driven diversion programs harness positive peer pressure and utilize it in a peer judgment setting to help address the anti-social, delinquent, and criminal behavior of youthful offenders.  The peer judgment, volunteer-driven, youth-led, and positive peer pressure aspects of these diversion programs are the primary programmatic elements that separate these juvenile justice and youth justice diversion programs from all others.  This Global Youth Justice Training will focus specifically on Establishing, Enhancing, and Expanding these Youth Justice and Juvenile Justice Diversion Programs.

Participants Eligibility:  Participants are individual adults and teams of 2-5 adults interested in Establishing, Enhancing, and/or Expanding Teen/Youth/Peer/Student Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs in the USA and around the Globe.  Because these diversion programs are operated by a wide range of agencies and organizations — with even more local partnerships, adults are primarily from courts, law enforcement agencies, nonprofits, district attorney’s offices, bar associations, public defenders offices, youth bureaus, public and private schools, civic and fraternal organizations, probation departments, foundations, colleges and universities, community service organizations, youth service agencies, youth bureaus, researchers, native and aboriginal tribes and councils, community coalitions, social and racial justice advocates, community organizers, community coalitions, non-profits, elected and public officials, and others involved with juvenile/youth/criminal justice.  Half of the training participants register as individuals, and the other half are teams of 2-5 adults.  

Food Provided:  Because Global Youth Justice Trainings are subsidized, $125 of the low $225 registration fee is also being spent back on food to include 3 Lunch Buffets served by Tuscany Suites Resort Restaurant. Tuesday (Fiesta Ole’ Lunch Buffet); Wednesday (America Lunch Buffet); and Thursday (Down of the Bayou Lunch Buffet). Resort prices for food at events are expensive, and also include 20% gratuity and 13.38% tax, but unlike most other trainings, we want to keep participants together for lunch — so we are using $125 of the $225 registration fee back on food.  There are no food substitutions, as the resort does not allow it with buffets.  Participants are responsible for whatever they eat for breakfast (coffee, muffins, etc.).  There is an inexpensive diner, coffee shop, and other options on site at the Tuscany Suites, as well as coffee makers, and free coffee in each resort room.  You can check out the 3 lunch buffets mentioned by click on Banquet Menu Lunches (page 15-20) https://www.tuscanylv.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/Banquet-Menu-2019.pdf

2 Step Registration Process

Step #1    The two (2) options to register include:

Option #1:  Fill out the registration individual registration form below and e-mail to Scott.Peterson@GlobalYouthJustice.org and request a secure PayPal Invoice, so you can use a personal/business/employer debit or credit card to pay registration.  You do not need to be a PayPal Member to pay a Secure PalPal Invoice, and 90% of participants use this option.

Option #2:  Fill out the registration form below and mail the registration form with a check made payable to Global Youth Justice, Inc. to Global Youth Justice, Inc., P.O. Box 1327, Somerville, Massachusetts, 02144.  Please feel free to contact Global Youth Justice by phone directly at (202) 468-3790 with any questions, such as eligibility before mailing registration forms.

Step #2    Registration approval is fairly on a 1st registered and 1st paid basis.  Individuals and teams of 2-5 individuals are eligible to register.  Global Youth Justice Trainings are subsidized, and therefor, registration approval is required before participants can proceed with making travel plans, booking resort rooms at our reduced rates, and before Global Youth Justice provides approved participants with the “Contract Code” to book resort rooms at the reduced rates in the Global Youth Justice contract with the Tuscany Suites Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.  Global Youth Justice Trainings do fill to capacity, given the large number of communities, schools, and tribes in the process of establishing, enhancing and/or expanding these diversion programs — so register early, as space is limited.
