Director General 
   
Today we are at the threshold of a major change in our society. We must ask ourselves a realistic question; What is more important to our society, to protect one person from the evil of the crime or to accuse forty people before the courts?

To find the answer to this simple question in a post communist country, where policing was part of the political doctrine, it is more than just a theoretical exercise. 

We believe that Crime Prevention is the responsibility of every citizen. First of all, our organization provides the forum for the parents and their children to address those issues together. Secondly, we provide crime prevention training for parents, educators, law enforcement personnel, legislators, and the general public in hope that they will utilize this knowledge in their communities. And thirdly, our Program Coordinators and Crime Prevention Practitioners, organize and supervise our volunteers trough their crime prevention activities and fundraising.

The most valuable resource that every community has is it's children. It is the responsibility of all of us to provide our children with knowledge, support and trust so they can attain their dreams and become responsible members of our global society. This is the reason why GC-JPV members so proudly display on their uniform shoulder patch: "KEEP YOUR DREAM ALIVE". 

Pear programs are effective way to establish a trust between the youth and adults, and the youth itself.   

  
War Against Corruption
 
Since the mid-1990s, the issue of corruption has gained a prominent place on the global agenda. International organizations, including the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the UN, have adopted conventions requiring that their members enact laws prohibiting bribery and extortion. International financial agencies, notably the World Bank, have announced programs aimed at ensuring fair and open contracting for their projects and stopping misappropriation by government officials. Most nations have enacted some type of anticorruption law. International business groups have promulgated model codes of behavior, and multinational corporations (MNCs) now claim to be implementing antibribery programs. The international media report instances of corruption in high places virtually every day (often at great risk). Read more ...
