What is Disney Dreamers Academy?
Have you heard of Disney Dreamers Academy with Steve Harvey?
Now in its sixth year, the Disney Dreamers Academy program continues its dedicated mission to providing a youth with an opportunity to learn how they can harness the power of their dreams. Through life-enriching interactive workshops and motivational talks, Disney Dreamers Academy gives the Dreamers inspiration to explore the countless possibilities they may never have even imagined and the tools they need to jumpstart turning their dreams into reality.
In this powerful four-day program, the Dreamers engage in a wide range of experiences while working hand and hand with community and industry leaders, dedicated Disney Cast Members and some of today’s top celebrities. From slicing and dicing with a master chef to bringing illustrations to life with a real Disney animator, our young Dreamers not only learn how to motivate themselves, but also how to inspire their friends, families and communities.
Not everyone gets to be invited to Disney Dreamers Academy, but this year a friend of mine, Debbie Denny, who has formed The Pitch List, was lucky enough to have been chosen to attend this fantastic once in a lifetime opportunity for some.
Here is a snippet of her post and please be sure to read her entire story about The Power of Dreams.
More than 5,000 teens across the country applied for the 2013 Disney Dreamers Academy. Only 100 were chosen to attend. They are chosen based on their qualities as a leader, or because they inspire others by giving back and volunteering in their own communities. Many show great courage by overcoming incredible odds in their home lives, yet they keep their eyes on their dreams.
With living so close to Disney World, I am hoping to have the opportunity to attend this wonderful opportunity next year.
