Kelly Hyles, who just completed her senior year at the High School for Math, Science and Engineering at the City College of New York—and who, as a junior, participated in the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai’s Center for Excellence in Youth Education (CEYE) Biotechnology and Medical Research program—was accepted for admission to all eight Ivy League universities. The CEYE offers enrichment programs to help underrepresented minority students prepare for careers in science and health care. “I worked in a research laboratory at The Mount Sinai Hospital, and it gave me the opportunity to explore my interests and show colleges that I was a serious candidate,” says Ms. Hyles. She plans to attend Harvard University in the fall—determined to become the first college graduate in her family and eventually, a neurosurgeon.
Kelly Hyles has taken the steps to become a winner and in fact, is winning already: the young woman, who has recently been accepted to 21 colleges, including all 8 Ivy League universities, is on a determined path to becoming a neurologist and the first college graduate in her family. Read more

Each year, more than 200 students across grades 7 through college participate in programs offered by the Center for Excellence in Youth Education (CEYE), which was established in 1975 to help historically underrepresented or economically disadvantaged individuals explore careers in science and medicine.
Are you interested in helping the Center for Excellence in Youth Education (CEYE) increase diversity in science and medicine by mentoring students in high school and college? If so, you would be joining the more than 100 Mount Sinai physicians, scientists, nurses, social workers, lab technicians, residents, and postdoctoral students who have invited students to shadow them in their jobs over the last two years. The students are selected after a competitive application process and must maintain a B average throughout the duration of the program. CEYE is sponsored by the Center for Multicultural and Community Affairs at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. To learn more, contact Alyson Davis, MSW, at 212-241-7655 or email@example.com.
