Atlas: DIY, Developing Immigrant Youth was incorporated as a Non-profit multi-service agency in January of 2012. Founded by a young lawyer with a specialization in immigration and children's rights and three of her former clients, the organization is based on an empowerment model and has gained national attention as a provider of legal services to undocumented youth between the ages of 14 and 24. Atlas accomplishes our mission by: 1) Collaborating with young people to provide direct services in legal, educational, career and life skills realms, 2) Developing young people's individual strengths and encouraging them to become community agents through a cooperative model and 3) Constructing an online hub of legal information and self-advocacy tools that youth across the United States can easily access and understand.
