The JKScientists is a non-profit organization fostering science and education among the youth of Jammu and Kashmir. A brainchild of Dr. Syed Mubarak Hussain, JKScientists has been active for over a decade and was recently registered as a non-profit organization under 501(c)(3) EIN (85-2367251) in the USA. The most unique feature of the JKScientists is that it is run solely by active scientists who are driven by a mission to foster scientific temperament among Kashmiri youth, particularly those coming from underprivileged and underrepresented backgrounds. JKScientist’s biggest strength is its team, who shares the passion of giving back to the community and has come together with their varied experiences to ensure they strive to fulfill the organization’s mission and vision while upholding its values. The team is a blend of experienced scientists, academicians, and enthusiastic freshers, all in sync with the organization's core values that drive individual thought and action. JKScientists is fortunate to have some of the brightest minds living in different parts of the world working towards empowering and changing the lives of our next generation. If we have been able to impact students' lives since the inception of JKScientists, it is primarily because of the people who have made it happen through their dedication and expertise. Today we are one of the most reputed Non-Governmental Organisations in Kashmir, providing avenues for scientific training, mentoring, and outreach. Through various mentoring, counseling, and outreach programs, JKScientists has impacted hundreds of students thus far. Most people have been accepted into reputed schools for graduate programs, postdoc programs, and even faculty positions. JKScientists is a 24x7 counseling and mentoring platform through the Facebook group, with over 13000 members.

At JKScientists, we aim to strengthen the community by diffusion of knowledge, imparting skills, and creating new opportunities for the upcoming generations to fulfill their academic aspirations. Since its inception, JKScientists has been proactive in promoting and encouraging scientific education, transforming hundreds of students' lives back home by empowering them to secure academic positions in reputed institutes/universities across the globe. At JKScientists, we envision a world where our next generation, in particular the student community, breaks out of challenges and difficulties to lead and contribute positively to their community and the world around them. In addition, JKScientists envisage bringing a culture of tech start-ups that collectively will lead to the growth of skilled workers and prepare the youth to deliver their best locally and globally. This ambitious aim can be achieved by transforming the pedagogy in the field of science with innovative methods of teaching and scientific and career outreach from the school to the university level. More importantly, JKScientists is actively advocating for science and education in the region of Jammu and Kashmir.

Since its inception in 2011, we have launched various mentoring and training programs that run throughout the year, catering to the emerging needs of the community in general and the student population in particular. The fruits of these diverse programs are evident in the success stories of students who have qualified for entry-level exams for higher studies, and secured scholarships in reputed research institutes. In addition to educational needs, our organization also raises awareness regarding community-based issues.
