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 three (3) day training institute includes a free 1/2 day grant writing session, and provides participants with the knowledge and skills to establish, expand, enhance and/or learn Teen/Youth/Student/Peer Court and Peer Jury programs.  This new Double-Track Training includes sessions for beginners and an advanced track.

Eligibility:  Participants are Individual Adults and Teams of 2-5 Adults interested in establishing, enhancing, expanding and learning about Teen/Youth/Peer/Student Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs.  Participants are adults 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, native and aboriginal tribes and councils, community coalitions, social justice activists, community organizers, community coalitions, college students, and others interested in juvenile/youth/criminal justice.  Global Youth Justice encourages teams of 2-5 adults, especially when at the establishment, learning and expansion phase.   Half of the training participants register as individuals, and the other half are teams of 2-5 adults.  Registration is Limited to 125 Participants — so Register Early !!!

2 Step Registration Process

Step #1    The two (2) options to register include:   (Option #1) Fill out the registration form below for each person and e-mail it 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 for each person and mail the registration form(s) with a check made payable to Global Youth Justice, Inc.  They can be mailed to: Scott Peterson, CEO, 12 South Sparrowbush Road, Latham, New York 12110.  If you are mailing registration forms with a check, and would like registration approval prior to mailing a check, please email registration forms to Scott.Peterson@GlobalYouthJustice.org and request pre-approval.  Please feel free to contact Global Youth Justice by phone directly at (202) 468-3790.  Please note — the Registration Fee for USA Residents is $195 and Non-USA Residents is $250, given international requirements, and additional paperwork and processing required.  The USA is considered the 50 USA States, District of Columbia, 5 U.S. Territories and all 550+ Native American, Indigineous, and Alaskan Native Tribes, Councils and Villages.

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 and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.  Global Youth Justice Trainings do fill to capacity, given the large number of communities with an existing program, and many more communities are in various phases of establishing one of these programs — so register early, as space is limited to only 125 adult participants for the 21st Global Youth Justice Training.  A Limited number of youth volunteers in leadership roles in these programs are eligible to attend, and contacting Global Youth Justice to discuss this is the first step in the approval process, as we are glad to dicuss requirements.
