One hundred high school students from across the country will celebrate Black History month as they convene at Walt Disney World Resort Feb. 11-14 to participate in Disney’s Dreamers Academy 2010. This annual program is in partnership with nationally syndicated radio personality Steve Harvey.
Some 100 high school students and a guardian will be given unprecedented access to the magic behind Walt Disney World Resort. As part of their experience, this group of dreamers will participate in interactive workshops focusing on a variety of subjects including Walt Disney Imagineering techniques, entertainment, the business of sports, culinary arts and more. Disney cast members, executives and celebrities will share their blueprints for success. Participants will also explore Disney’s theme parks and then end their special weekend with a graduation ceremony where a special guest will deliver a motivational address.
In conjunction with “The Steve Harvey Morning Show,” Walt Disney World Resort conducted the Dreamer’s Contest to identify the participants, grades 9-12, in Disney’s Dreamers Academy. This program was created for high school students who show promise but may need additional motivational support to excel. However, all of the selected students share a trait: the power to DREAM.
Disney’s Dreamers Academy With Steve Harvey was launched in 2007. For more information visit their website today.
