Learn more about ‘I Am a Volunteer’:
NBC4 Southern California launched the ‘I Am a Volunteer’ campaign, a station initiative designed to encourage volunteerism by connecting viewers to community-based organizations like the ‘I Have a Dream Foundation’ and raising awareness of the importance and need for volunteers in Los Angeles and its surrounding districts.

The calendar highlights upcoming volunteer opportunities and directs viewers to the station’s ‘I Am a Volunteer’ web page, where they can connect with the ‘I Have a Dream Foundation’ – Los Angeles for more information on how they get involved with our youth based programs.

“Volunteers are the lifeline of our organization and are vital for fulfilling our mission of helping underprivileged children have a better life and get a good education,” said Debra Fine, CEO of the I Have a Dream Foundation – Los Angeles. ‘I Am a Volunteer’ recognizes that those who volunteer are the true heroes in our shared community, and shows how rewarding it is to give back.

How to Become a Volunteer with IHADLA Volunteer Los Angeles Program:

“I Have a Dream” Foundation – Los Angeles (IHADLA) works to break the cycle of poverty by sponsoring entire classes of 3rd graders in low-income, underserved schools, working with students for 10 consecutive years through high school graduation and into college. The sponsored students, who we call “Dreamers”, are not the only ones who benefit from the program; siblings, parents, other students in the school, and local community members also feel the positive impact of IHADLA’s educational and enrichment offerings.

The youth based programs at IHADLA would not be possible without the help of community minded people who care about the future of our younger generations. IHADLA welcomes mentors, tutors, volunteers and dream speakers and of course monetary donations.

If you are not in Los Angeles to help in person and don’t wish to donate money at this time, you can still help! If you follow any of IHADLA’s social profiles @IHADLA on Twitter and Instagram; subscribe to us on YouTube, or circle us on GooglePlus, you will be helping us build awareness through those social avenues. That is a gift we very much appreciate.
