Student-founded nonprofit provides STEM-based tutoring

Submitted By Youth Science Enthusiasts

Bubbling chemical reactions and explosive experiments are near and dear to the heart of Samir Jain, a junior at Mission San Jose High School in Fremont. Two years ago, Jain founded Youth Science Enthusiasts (YSE), a nonprofit organization that represents his love of science and passion for tutoring.

Today, more than a hundred students are enrolled in five YSE locations across the East and South Bay. Recent rapid growth in YSE enrollment reflects the current trend in studentsÕ interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields as possible career choices.

YSE is making a difference. Not only was YSE recently recognized in Bay Area Parent magazine, but Bowman Elementary in Hayward produced its second school science fair inspired by JainÕs dedication. One of SamirÕs students developed an electric car for his science fair project, which he took to the Hayward district science fair last May. Ace Charter School in San Jose started its first school science fair, inspired by JainÕs leadership in science education.

Jain also works with Alum Rock Library in San Jose where he and his volunteers perform experiments and provide explanations for children of all ages. For more information, visit
