Contact Information: 718-387-1600 x 14
William was raised in Bushwick, grew up in Bedford-Stuyvesant and has lived in Williamsburg, a product of the three main neighborhoods served by OBT. William came to OBT when they first opened their Bushwick/Bed-Stuy site in July 2001 as the assistant program director. Prior to coming to OBT he worked nine years for All Saints’ Church as the Site Administrator. While at All Saints he was involved in the community working on issues such as immigration, youth-employment and housing. William had plans to become a lawyer so he can help the people in his community, but when he started working at the church and OBT he felt he could be more effective helping people change their situations by providing them with opportunities. William is now the site administrator at the Bushwick/Bed-Stuy site. He has a BS in legal technology from NYC Technical College.
