The Project

The Asian Immigrant Youth Assistance Project aims to provide immigration legal assistance, advocacy and outreach to Asian immigrant youth and their families in the D.C. area through a T, U, and SIJS visa initiative. We intend to work with youth who are abused or abandoned; victims of human trafficking; or victims of crime and can assist in the prosecution of these crimes. The goal is to promote safety, permanency and well being for the community as a whole so that security can be heightened for at-risk populations such as Asian immigrant youth.
