The Disney VoluntEARS program was established in 1983 and has since touched upon 42 countries around the world, bringing the magic of Disney to those in need. The Disney VoluntEARS was introduced to Cast Members of Hong Kong Disneyland shortly before our Resort opens in 2005. Since then, Disney VoluntEARS from Hong Kong have contributed over 45,000 hours of their own time in making a positive impact on the community.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation in Hong Kong has always been making dreams come true for children with life-threatening illnesses. Hong Kong Disneyland Resort is proud to be a Wish Partner and to welcome Wish Kids to the Park. Our Hong Kong Disneyland Resort Ambassador hosts every child as a VIP Guest and welcomes them warmly to their dream-come-true.
Hong Kong Disneyland Resort collaborates with Playright Children's Play Association on 'It's Playtime in Hospital!' project. The Project entails the availability of one full-time Hospital Play Specialist at Princess Margaret Hospital's Nephrology ward to support over 1,000 renal child patients; a Playwork Induction Course for 180 Disney VoluntEARS to enable them to better support the work of Hospital Play Therapists; and a clinical study by The University of Hong Kong on the efficacy of hospital play services.
Disney's Friends for Change is about inspiring kids to take steps together with their friends and family to make a positive impact on the world. The mission is to provide kids with the information, tools, encouragement and inspiration to become stewards of change. As more kids across the globe become involved, through even the smallest of actions, we can begin to make big changes.
Hong Kong Disneyland Resort is passionate about nurturing and finding talents who are aspired to develop their career in the entertainment and hospitality industries. Every year, the Resort offers Disney Scholarships to performing arts, design, hotel, travel and tourism, hospitality and engineering students to support their tuition fee. In addition to offering scholarships to talented students to encourage them to continue to work hard, the Resort also provides internship opportunities to students to put what they learnt in the classroom into practice.
"Give a Day. Get a Disney Day." is a scheme launched by Agency for Volunteer Service and Hong Kong Disneyland Resort in 2010 to promote volunteer service. Volunteers who have completed eight hours of service will have a chance to receive a one-day complimentary admission ticket to Hong Kong Disneyland via the service organization. Since its launch, some three million volunteer hours were generated under the scheme. More details are available at www.giveaday.hk.
