Jason Walter - Executive Director On behalf of 2 Live Beyond Inc., It gives me immense pleasure to introduce myself as the new Director. My heart could not possibly be filled with more joy and admiration for the selfless acts of compassion 2LB has displayed for children. I am happy to announce that my onboarding with 2 Live Beyond comes with passion for those in need both abroad and within the states. While a member of this amazing team, I desire to increase organizational efficiencies, establish unique team building and work together for the vision to retain and identify new members helping to develop financial sustainability and growth. It is with great optimism that I serve each of you with the intent to develop and grow the local chapter with the long term strategic plan to implement new chapters throughout additional regions. My years of experience both learning and leading provide me with the desirable ability to take charge and hit the ground running with minimal time for ‘learning curve’ adjustments. 2 Live Beyond appears to be perfectly aligned to take advantage of a leader with strong organizational and interpersonal skills—one that is able to integrate receptive changes in order to realize current and future goals, create financial stability, and enhance our reputation in the community. I am happily married to my gift from God Jenna and have three children (6, 3 and 2) all boys.  I am a former United States Marine having served eight years’ active duty performing a variety of duties and responsibilities. While serving in the Marines, I became aware of my passion for youth. I began to research and study ways to engage in and support their needs. Upon completion of my eighth year, I enrolled at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA acquiring a dual degree in Psychology specializing in Christian and Crisis Counseling with a concentration in youth development. I have since served as the Executive Director of Communities In Schools of Cabarrus County, NC as well as the director of hope services and connections through Camino Church and the Camino Community Center. Together we as individuals can unite for a purpose so much bigger than ourselves bringing our gifts and talents to impact children in ways never before seen. Thank you all!
