The purpose of the Schwab Foundation is to identify and support programs that help middle and high school students connect their education to their future career choices by providing the resources and opportunities they need to investigate, explore, and experience the array of career options available to them in a 21st century global economy.
Featured Program: Disney Dreamers Academy
The Schwab Foundation worked with Disney to bring a new, exciting experience to high school students in northeast Indiana. The Disney Dreamers Academy is offering an opportunity for students to participate in their 2012 Disney Dreamers Academy. One hundred winners will be selected to attend the workshop. As one of the winners of the contest, that student will be part of an immersive four-day program at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida in March 2012. The Schwab Foundation partnered with Disney to fund the communication effort in this area.
