I recently learned about an awesome program put on by the wonderful people at Walt Disney World where students can participate in hands-on, immersive career seminars right at Disney!
Disney Dreamer’s Academy turns the entire magical setting of Walt Disney World into a vibrant classroom.
Students participate in a series of sessions and workshops designed to help them imagine bright futures, make exciting discoveries and learn how to put their goals into action.
DisneyDreamersAcademy.com with Steve Harvey and Essence’ Magazine motivates teens to achieve their own particular goals and encourage them on a path to success. Students are involved with many workshops that present the tools they will need to turn dreams into reality.
In a robust four-day series of events, the Dreamers engage in a wide range of experiences while working hand in hand with community and industry leaders, Disney Cast Members and some of today’s top celebrities where Dreamers not only learn how to motivate themselves, but also how to inspire their friends, families, and communities.
Disney Dreamers Academy cannot be summed up in one post or theme, but if I have to say a short description of this event then I will use this powerful quote…
“Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers the believers, and thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see greatness within you, even when you don’t see it in yourself.” ~unknown
