Biography

Younas most recently served as an Atlas Corps Fellow in Washington, DC. As a Training Manager, he helped Atlas Corps in the implementation, evaluation, and expansion of the Global Leadership Lab. He was previously a student life coordinator at the Salamat International Campus for Advanced Studies in Lahore, and a Teaching Assistant at the School for Social Science & Humanities at Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS).  In 2009, while he was in college, Younas came up with an idea to start a street theater for underprivileged children, where he would teach the children of factory workers how to act and produce plays, as a means of creating cost effective entertainment for average laborers in the community.  The plays he selected highlighted the problems and plight of the poor and other societal issues.  The project is still in existence – called Laal Theatre.  Since its inception, Laal Theatre has delivered 80 performances and reached more than 3000 people.  Some of the actors, many of whom come from low-income communities, have been given the opportunity to perform at different platforms and have also been invited to other countries.
