Position
Capacity Building Center for States / JBS International, Consultant / Performance Auditor

David Samuel Hall experienced foster care twice before he “aged out” of state custody with multiple juvenile convictions in between his times in care. After he began working towards his degree in Music Education at Oklahoma City University, he discovered his passion for serving the community and began working towards that goal on a grander scale.

Today, this public servant is proactively engaged in changing his community on a local, state, and federal level as a political activist and strategist, as well as consultation and performance auditing through the various contracts he holds, including the Capacity Building Center for States and JBS International.

His work has culminated to his appointment to the State Advisory Group for Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention by Governor Fallin, the privilege of participating in Partners in Policymaking led by the Oklahoma Developmental Disabilities Council, and serving on the National Foster Care Youth and Alumni Policy Council, simultaneously. And this year, with the help of his colleagues in the legislature, he will introduce a model legislative package, called “CW22”, for foster care alumni, advocates, and agency liaisons across the nation to use that will appear in over 5 state legislatures and 1 federal bill in just the first year.
