About Us

Global Youth Justice, Inc. champions the expansion of youth justice and juvenile justice diversion programs called Youth/Teen/Peer/Student Court and Peer Jury. Historic numbers of Justice Volunteers, including youth and adults -- make it possible for 1,800+ communities on 5 continents to give their youth a 2nd, and even 3rd chance for committing minor crimes, offenses and violations.

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.
