Meet C2C Neighbor Bryan Harmon

C2C Neighbor Bryan Harmon

C2C Neighbor since 2010

Where He Calls Home:  Montclair, NJ

Has love  for: Education and mentoring, Junior Achievement, my wife Anneka, son Henry and daughter Lilia (with whom he’ll be traveling to Costa Rica to volunteer as a family at a nature preserve for four months), and Haïti

What do you think makes C2C different than other organizations of its kind?

Lots of NGO’s march in with their vision of what they think should be done in communities like these, but I’ve been delighted to watch the evolution of C2C listening and building based on what they’ve seen and their own connection with the community. Not just the work and the outcomes that come from construction projects, but also the process of active listening and engaging in order to build together is what makes them unique. The difference is that C2C begins with a conversation and an understanding of what their “clients” need. That’s what I’ve noticed Marie’s done tremendously well; it’s not about what can I do, but what do you need and what you want to own for yourselves.
