Bryan Lawrence

YouthBuild Director

Why I Do What I Do:
I have committed my career to developing youth because I feel that all young men and women, despite the challenges and inequities they have to face, deserve a shot at success…their “American Dream”. I have had the great privilege of working in this industry for almost 20 years and I have had the pleasure of meeting countless young men and women who take the first step to turn their lives around. It is incredibly rewarding to have a small part in creating an opportunity or a pathway for someone to reach their potential and discover a passion for personal success.

Fun Fact About Bryan:
My dog is named after Home Depot! Nine years ago I surprised my wife with a puppy for her 30th birthday. At the time, we were in the middle of remodeling a home that we had recently purchased. We spent many hours at Home Depot with our two year old son at the time purchasing supplies for our remodeling needs. When I brought our puppy home, we asked our two year old son what we should name him and he said Home Depot! The name stuck and we named our yellow lab Depot!
