Ethan leads the Cities for Education Entrepreneurship Trust (CEE-Trust) - a national network founded by The Mind Trust that includes 28 city-based education non-profits, foundations, and mayors' offices across the country. CEE-Trust acts as a convener, collaborator, and consultant - helping its member organizations accelerate the pace of education innovation and reform in their cities. Before joining The Mind Trust, he worked as the Policy Director at Be the Change, Inc., in Cambridge, Mass., where he helped craft a policy agenda to expand national and community service opportunities that strongly influenced the introduction of the Edward M. Kennedy "Serve America Act." Ethan was compelled to join The Mind Trust because the group approaches education reform from the city level, where he believes there is the greatest possibility for transformation.
