Global Youth Justice Launches 250 Youth Justice Web Sites
May 1, 2013
On May 1, 2013, Global Youth Justice, in
conjunction with the American Bar
Association and its celebration of Law Day, is helping local youth
courts in 41 states launch 250 Web sites
to promote their juvenile justice diversion programs. More than 1,400
communities and tribes worldwide currently operate a youth justice program
associated with their local peer, student, youth, or teen courts. These
courts train teenagers to be judges, prosecutors, attorneys, and jurors who
handle low-level offenses of their peers, promote accountability, provide
access to youth resources, and model peer leadership.
about volunteer opportunities in these youth justice programs for both
adults and youth in your state.
