Program Overview

Disney's Hollywood Studios becomes the backdrop for students' exploration of self-awareness and the realization that they have the power to improve their circumstances through the choices they make each day. Students discover elements that make up their personal brand and the necessity of fostering their brand in order to protect a future they may not even have imagined yet.

Today's students are faced with an explosion of challenges and opportunities, both inside the classroom and beyond. With modern technology—particularly social media—students are often unaware how personal actions and behaviors can impact the opportunities for their future.

Through insightful discussion and engaging activities, students come to realize that they already hold the power to form positive impressions, develop valuable skills and forge relationships that can help them obtain their dreams. This power lies in the choices they make, and in the thoughtful management of their personal brand.
