Prior to joining New America, Reeves worked as the programs and development manager at Seeds of Peace, an international, youth leadership-development organization. In his programmatic role, Reeves created and led intensive experiential learning trips to the Middle East with a strong focus on U.S. foreign and domestic policy, Middle Eastern political history, multiple narratives, and contemporary conflict analysis. He also designed, facilitated, and produced seminars and workshops with the goal of enabling participants to become change agents as they seek to effect systemic social and political change.
As a member of the development staff at Seeds of Peace, he planned, managed, and executed annual fundraising and engagement events. These included both young professional events and the annual spring benefit dinner, the latter of which raised over one million dollars annually. He also created and managed multiple volunteer and fundraising groups to engage young professionals in the organization’s mission, successfully implementing a new volunteer model.
Reeves graduated with a B.A. in international development and social change from Clark University in 2010, where he interned in Windhoek, Namibia. He is originally from the New Haven, Conn. area.
