Meet Lily McKeage

NYC Program Manager |

Lily McKeage grew up in New York City and joined YES-NYC as Program Director in summer 2016. After graduating from Rice University in 2009, Lily received a Fulbright Fellowship to teach English and Science at a middle school in Madrid, Spain. Lily recently completed her Masters in Higher Education at Harvard, focusing on college access and persistence for historically underrepresented students. With her background in literature, language instruction, and visual art, Lily encourages students to explore their own thinking through a variety of media. Lily is also supporting YES’s first NYC cohort with applying, planning and transitioning to college. After many years away from NYC, Lily was drawn back by YES’s mission and the opportunity to work with incredible students.
