The Dreamers are going to Disney World! One hundred students across the nation have been chosen to participate in the 2020 Disney Dreamers Academy in Orlando, Florida. The states of California, Georgia, and Florida have lots of representation.
The Dreamers Academy is a four-day program in which teenagers between the ages of 13 and 19 have the opportunity to receive mentorship from professionals in their chosen industries. Steve Harvey partners with Disney, ESSENCE, and other sponsors every year to make the academy possible.
“I know from personal experience that big dreams lead to big success,” the legendary entertainer says. “Disney understands that concept better than any other company and that is why I partner with them every year on this program to encourage big dreams for the next generation,” Harvey shares.
Michelle Ebanks, Chief Executive Officer of Essence Communications Inc., also comments on the positive impact that Dreamers Academy has on kids every year. “Meeting the 100 impressive students selected for Disney Dreamers Academy each year is a personal highlight for me,” Ebanks says.
“I am continually amazed by their ambition, talent, and perseverance. Partnering with Disney on this program is an opportunity to carry out our ongoing mission to inspire, inform and empower.”
The Disney Dreamers Academy comes to Disney World in Orlando on Thursday, March 12, 2020, and concludes on Sunday, March 15, 2020, with a graduation ceremony. Learn more about the program here!
