Disneyland Resort to honor altruistic high schoolers through its Dreamers & Doers program

Do you know a Orange County high school student who’s making a difference in his or her community, home or school?

You might want to let them know about the Disneyland Resort Dreamers & Doers program.

 The Disneyland Resort Dreamers & Doers logoAs part of Disney’s commitment to supporting youth and the community, Dreamers & Doers was established to recognize young men and women who are the driving force for positive change through service. 

Specifically, high schoolers will be singled out for “creating a brighter tomorrow” in these four focus areas: Strengthen Communities, Think Creatively, Conserve Nature and Live Healthier.

Starting Sept. 12, students attending an Orange County public, private or charter high school can download an application from the Disneyland Resort Public Affairs website. Completed forms must be submitted to their school’s main offices by Oct. 31. 

Each Orange County high school can select up to two Dreamers & Doers, who will have the opportunity to win prizes including Disneyland Resort park tickets, hotel stays and money for their school.

In February, 60 students from 40 different OC high schools were picked to be “Shining Stars” and six earned distinction as “Luminaries,” capping the program’s first year. Along with attending a luncheon with their family, friends and school representatives, the students were invited to a day-long educational symposium focusing on leadership development and collaborative problem-solving.
