Disney Dreamers Academy for our Teens
E! News host and actor Terrence Jenkins takes a moment to pose with Mickey Mouse, his mother Lisa Gonzalez, actress Lauren London, Disney Dreamers Academy alumnus and current University of Southern California student Princeton Parker and a group of mothers and their children at an empowerment session hosted by Disney Dreamers Academy at Disneyland Resort on Saturday. Jenkins is a speaker and ambassador for Disney Dreamers Academy with Steve Harvey and Essence Magazine held annually at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and just released his first book The Wealth of My Mother's Wisdom. Each year Disney Dreamers Academy brings 100 high school students from across the U.S. to Walt Disney World Resort to experience a 4-day program that inspires and fuels their dreams, helps them dream bigger, discover a world of possibilities and get a jumpstart on making those dreams come true! Applications for Disney Dreamers Academy are open at www.disneydreamersacademy.com through Oct. 31.
Disney Dreamers Academy will accept applications for the 2014 program beginning July 2 to October 31, 2013. Potential Dreamers may apply for a chance to be one of 100 students selected to participate in the program. Students must be between the ages of 13–19, live in the United States, and be enrolled in high school grades 9–12 when applying.
Disney seeks students with a winning combination of attributes that reflect strong character, positive attitude, and persistence to take advantage of opportunities. Does this sound like someone you know? Disney is looking for Dreamers for next year’s Disney Dreamers Academy, so they can get the tools to help make their dreams come true. Follow #DDA on Facebook and Twitter for updates. You can apply online also! Read more HERE and Download the complete list of official rules.
A blogging friend was invited to cover the 2013 Disney’s Dreamers Academy this last March. I think this would be an awesome experience and would love to be a blogger covering it this year! I really feel that our teens need more positive encouragement and need someone to step up to the plate. I believe this is what Disney is doing and would love to view it first hand! This is an awesome program and opportunity for our young people. You can read more about the 2013 event HERE! Pin It Now!
