Each student chosen will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Walt Disney World to take part in a four-day experience that will be held from March 12-15.

The program, now in its 13th year, is part of Walt Disney World’s commitment to helping the next generation by inspiring them at a critical point of their youth. The theme of the program is “Be100,” which encourages teens to be positive, to give it their all, and take what they learn back home with them so they can pursue their dreams and make a difference in the world.

Students will take part in immersive career-oriented workshops that explore a wide range of disciplines found at Walt Disney World, and learn life tools like effective communication techniques, leadership skills, and networking strategies.

“After 12 successful years, we know the profound impact this program has on these students,” said Tracey D. Powell, vice president of Walt Disney World Resort and executive champion for Disney Dreamers Academy. “One dream can change the world, and through Disney Dreamers Academy we hope to help these amazing teens turn their dreams into reality.”
