WALT DISNEY RESORTS has partnered with STEVE HARVEY to host 100 high school students from across AMERICA at this year’s academy. Selected students will be exposed to unique, interactive seminars ranging from “the unseen jobs of entertainment” to “the business of sports” to “the power of networking.”
Other celebrities scheduled to appear include singers RUBEN STUDDARD, YOLANDA ADAMS, actors TAMARA MOWRY and ROSHON FAGEN and celebrity trainer HARVEY WALDEN.
Special sessions for this year’s academy include a candid look inside the newest DISNEY animated film , “THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG.” DWAYNE EDWARDS, who designs celebrity footwear for NIKE, will share information on non-traditional careers in sports. Students who have culinary aspirations will get a hands-on tutorial from celebrity chef JEFF HENDERSON.
“Each year we strive to find young people who may have a will or passion but may not have the courage to explore their dreams,” said HARVEY. “So we hope to unlock the power that will allow them to pursue their heart’s desires. WALT DISNEY WORLD and I both are excited to be part of these young dreamers’ experiences that will encourage them to bring their dreams to life.”
