The Disney Dreamers Academy helps 100 high school students from ages 13-19 get a head start on their futures. the academy uses the space of the Walt Disney World as a physical learning experience. The students will be able to attend workshops and seminars that will encourage them to achieve their goals and follow their dreams. Students will learn effective communication, leadership, and networking skills and so much more.
The dreamers will get to hear from celebrity guest speakers, such as Steve Harvey. They will also get to hear from other inspirational guest speakers and cast members. Then, through the academy’s “Be 100” campaign, the dreamers will get to hear from graduates of the program and see how they have achieved their dreams. Graduates have gone on to become doctors, engineers, pilots and more.
All aspiring dreamers have to do is answer essay questions about their hopes for the future. Dreamers will be chosen based on their displays of character and determination. Once selected, students will get to take a four day all expenses paid trip to Walt Disney World in 2020. Students will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
