Beginning September 8, Orange County high school students can apply to become part of the first class of Dreamers & Doers, Disneyland Resort’s newly announced program aimed at recognizing exemplary high school students who take action to improve their community, home or school. Students are asked to submit applications based on their good deeds and service, from tutoring younger students, to leading a food drive, to starting a recycling program or helping with a sick or elderly family member.
“Dreamers & Doers is deeply rooted in Disney’s decades-long commitment to volunteerism and supporting youth and the community,” said Jill Bolton, director of corporate citizenship at Disneyland Resort. “We are excited to continue this legacy during our 60th anniversary, rewarding local high school students who are making positive changes in their community and inspiring them to further their good work.”
The new program will reward students in various ways including Disneyland Resort park tickets, hotel stays and funds for their schools. Students interested in applying to become a Dreamer & Doer this fall are encouraged to use summer break to get involved and make a difference, and even showcase how they are making an impact by submitting videos of their work in action. Select videos will then be part of a final video highlighting the program, which will be shown on the Disney Parks Blog and various other social media channels.
Instructions for submitting videos and more information about the program can be found here.
