Expand Your Mind (EYM) Program: Expand Your Knowledge, Challenge Your Perspective and Inspire Your Future!

EYM is a two-week summer experience for bright and motivated teenagers who will be in grades 8 through 12 in the fall of 2015.  Two sessions are offered: June 15 - 26, 2015 (Session A) OR July 6 - 17, 2015 (Session B) .

"One word I would describe MITY as is magical. It's a place where you can truly express yourself and be who you want to be. Everyone is extremely open, inviting, and accepting of who you are, regardless of your background. MITY contains an intellectually stimulating environment in which I felt challenged academically. Coming from a rural town with few classes, I often felt bored and disengaged in school. At MITY, I was able to take interesting classes I was truly interested in each summer, which helped me in finding new interests such as psychology or music theory. The best part of MITY is meeting new friends, whom I still keep in contact with the friends I made four years later. Through MITY, I was able to gain confidence in my abilities and gain a sense of who I was."            - Paulina Hoong (Former ETS participant who has attended EYM)
