“All of our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.’’ – Walt Disney
That sentiment is at the heart of our transformational mentorship program Disney Dreamers Academy, and we are thrilled to announce the ever-popular, outside-the-classroom event is set to return to Walt Disney World Resort March 3-6, 2022!
We’re inviting high school students nationwide to apply at DisneyDreamersAcademy.com for their opportunity to be one of the 100 students to receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Walt Disney World. There, the four magical theme parks will become the vibrant settings where Disney Dreamers will participate in programming designed to inspire young leaders to dream beyond their imaginations and jump-start their life goals.
After the 2020 program was cut short due to the pandemic and transitioned to a successful virtual program series, we are excited to have our Disney Dreamers back here with us in person! And this year we celebrate a milestone event – the 15th year of Disney Dreamers Academy!
Throughout its history, Disney Dreamers Academy has inspired more than 1,300 students with hands-on, immersive career seminars in a wide range of disciplines found at Walt Disney World. Participants learn how to improve their communication, leadership and networking along with other valuable personal and professional development skills.
They also hear from and interact with community and industry leaders, Disney cast members and celebrity guests – past celebrities included singer NE-YO, NBA Legend and business mogul Magic Johnson and star of Disney’s upcoming live-action “Little Mermaid,” Halle Bailey.
Disney Dreamers Academy is focused on challenging young people to relentlessly pursue their dreams through the “Be 100” campaign – to be positive, to be “all in” and to apply lessons from their DDA experience to help make a difference in the lives of others. Graduates of the program have gone on to become entrepreneurs, community leaders, medical professionals, engineers, pilots, journalists and much more.
Do you know a student with big dreams, drive and passion? High schoolers ages 13 to 19 can apply to be part of the 2022 class of Disney Dreamers Academy through Oct. 31, 2021. To apply, visit DisneyDreamersAcademy.com.
