Registration Free and Resort Rooms:  Global Youth Justice Trainings are subsidized through other contributions and volunteers, and therefor — they are among the most affordable trainings available on juvenile justice and youth justice.  The $195 registration fee includes 3 days of training, 3+ breakfast buffets, 3 lunch buffets, 3 afternoon snack breaks, training materials and more.  The $89+/$109+ tax resort room rates are for approved Global Youth Justice Training participants.  Room rates are $40 less than rates available to the public.  Participants book rooms after they are registered, paid and provided with the code to book rooms at reduced rates.

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 and enhance Teen/Youth/Student/Peer Court and Peer Jury programs.

Eligibility:  Participants are individuals and teams of 2-5 adults interested in establishing, enhancing, expanding and learning about Teen Court, Youth Court, Peer Court, Student Court and Peer Jury Diversion Programs.  Participants are primarily adult staff, adult volunteers, partners and volunteers 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 and others.  Global Youth Justice encourages teams of adults, especially when at the establishment and expansion phase.   Half of the training participants register as individuals, and the other half as teams of 2-5.

2 Easy Registration Steps

Step #1    The two (2) options to register include: (1) fill out the registration form for each person and mail it with a check or money order made payable to Global Youth Justice and mail to: Global Youth Justice, P.O. Box 1829, Provincetown, Massachusetts 02657  OR  (2) Fill out the registration form 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.  You do not need to be a PayPal Members to pay a Secure PalPal Invoice.  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.

Step #2    Registration approval is fairly on a 1st registered and 1st paid basis.  Global Youth Justice Trainings are subsidized, and therefor, registration approval is required before participants can proceed with travel, booking resort rooms, 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 Provincetown Inn in Cape Cod, MA, 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.
