*Eric Butts Writes Why Are There Still So Few Black CPAs"

At "I Have a Dream" Foundation - Los Angeles (IHADLA) we work to help disadvantaged youth to see possibilities.

A perception of possibilities has much to do with goals. We open minds with field trips and bringing in speakers.

As Eric Butts points out, mentoring and sponsorship are often essential ingredients.

We are proud that our IHADLA program alumni include black CPAs.

Thank you +Eric Butts for an excellent article.

Matthew Lillard Hosts Charity Bingo FunRaiser to support Education NonProfit IHADLA's Los Angeles At-Risk Youth

January 22, Sunday. West Hollywood Hamburger Mary's. Their Legendary Bingo is always fun! And this is for a great cause.

“I Have a Dream” Foundation – Los Angeles (IHADLA) sponsors an entire class of at-risk third graders at an underserved school in a low-income neighborhood, regardless of each student’s academic level or learning challenges. Through our programs, we empower underprivileged youth to become successful young adults.

Staying with our students (“Dreamers”) through high school and then to and through post-secondary education, we make a long-term commitment to provide free year-round programs, services, and individualized case management for 10 consecutive years. We have recently launched a college and career program that helps college students stay in and finish college and find work.

The Foundation provides a comprehensive whole-child education program that prepares students for higher education and a successful and empowered life through academic support, social-emotional development, college and career prep, campus visits, tutoring, cultural enrichment, prevention programs (drug, crime, and pregnancy), and one-on-one mentoring.

When our Dreamers graduate from high school, we offer them a scholarship for college and other forms of higher education.

Thank you +Matthew Lillard

Computer and Technology TechRadio Podcast Talks Amazon Smile and Gives IHADLA a Thumbs Up

Every Saturday noon to 12:55pm PST, the Computer and Technology TechRadio show is available live. It’s fun to listen live, and tweet with the hosts +Marsha Collier and Marc Cohen as well as the other listeners. This show is always lively, entertaining and informative.

Computer and Technology TechRadio show usually starts out with recent tech news. There is always a “buy of the week” discovery segment delivered by Marc Cohen @RealMarcCohen. And the last 5-10 minutes is always about TV and film as available through live streaming and otherwise. You will find a reflection of what is being talked about on the show in a TechRadio Twitter stream searchable with the hashtag #TechRadio. On July 30th, the day I Have a Dream Foundation – Los Angeles (IHADLA) was first mentioned, #techradio was a “trending” hashtag on Twitter.

Co-host Marsha Collier is well known on social media as an influencer in the fields of marketing, social media, tech, cars and more. Her Twitter and Instagram handle is @MarshaCollier. She has sold over 1,000,000 books as an expert in e-commerce, especially eBay, and customer service. (Marsha also hosts a very popular Twitter chat on Tuesdays at 6pm PST called #CustServ).

Most of Marsha Collier’s 30+ books are from the e-Bay for Dummies series published by Wiley. As Marsha has pointed out on her Computer and Technology TechRadio Show, eBay is a good place to earn extra income. With her easy to digest 9th edition of her classic book published this May, you can learn how. A good selection of Marsha Collier’s books are listed here on Amazon.

Sometimes there are tech related guests on the show. On July 30th, Mark Jeffrey, Founder of Guardian Circle, an app that helps you keep your loved ones and close friends safe, was guest.

The Computer and Technology podcast is archived on iTunes, Stitcher, Tune-in, iHeart and WSRadio. New archives are available each Monday. (links on our article).

On July 30th Amazon Smile came up in discussion on the podcast and IHADLA was recommended!! Co-host Marc Cohen mentions that I Have a Dream Foundation – LA is one of the choices on Amazon Smile and Marsha Collier confirms that we are a “great charity”.
