If you are a High School student and you are looking for an innovative, outside-the-classroom, mentorship, look no further! Applications are being accepted for the 2017 Disney Dreamers Academy with Steve Harvey and ESSENCE. This annual event being held at the Walt Disney World Resort in March of 2017!
Well know for his syndicated radio and TV shows, Steve Harvey will once again be collaborating with ESSENCE magazine to bring this unique workshop focusing on career and educational opportunities for students ages 13-19.
“Giving back is important to me, and especially to our youth – our future leaders, entrepreneurs, and aspiring artists. We’ve seen more than 900 committed students come through the program, and I’m excited to find the next 100. The tenth anniversary will be special, and I encourage all high school students to take a minute of their time to apply for this incredible opportunity.” ~Steve Harvey on the Disney Dreamers Academy.
This annual event brings students from around the nation to Walt Disney World. Dreamers are encouraged to see different career choices. Disney Dreamers Academy workshops range from zoology, culinary, animation and medicine. In addition the students learn valuable communication skills, leadership values and network strategies. Knowledgable Disney experts create “classrooms” that are on-stage and backstage across the Walt Disney World Resort. Not to mention the celebrity speakers and special guests that share how they achieved success through DREAMING BIG!
How to join the Disney Dreamers Academy
So, how can you apply to be a part of this annual event? Students must complete essay questions, explaining their personal stories as well as their dreams for the future. Having a strong character, positive attitude and determination will be what sets the DREAMERS apart! If selected for Disney Dreamers Academy, Dreamers and a parent/guardian will receive an all-expense-paid trip to Walt Disney World for the event in March 2017.
