Abrar Omeish is a Legal Fellow on the Legal Advocacy Team at the National Center for Youth Law. She supports efforts, through legal research, legal strategy and legal action, to bring accountability for young people who experience harms at the hands of those in power.
Abrar's journey with youth services started in middle school when she co-founded an organization offering free tutoring and mentorship to thousands of underprivileged youth in nearly 20 locations across Northern Virginia. She has more than 15 years of experience working with youth directly and has most recently served as Virginia's youngest female elected official during her service representing more than 1.2 million constituents as an At-Large Member on the Fairfax County School Board.
