Mike Williams, Vice President of BDPA 

A proud native of Paterson, New Jersey, Williams discovered his desire to give back in 1997 when he opened an Internet Café and began to provide free access to computers for disadvantaged youth. He taught them basic computer and Internet skills. Because of his commitment to community, mentorship, and technology, Williams contributes his time, treasure, and talents to support local and national nonprofit organizations that align with his personal mission and values.  “I am very excited about BDPA’s future and its continuation of building on the 40-year legacy of developing future technology talent.
