The Disney VoluntEARS program, inherited from the Disneyland Action Team program created in California in 1983 and initially named Club Bénévole at Disneyland Paris, celebrates its 35th anniversary this year.
Since its opening, Disneyland Paris has relied on the commitment of Disney VoluntEARS to bring moments of joy and happiness to children and families. Each year, these volunteers – Cast Members or retirees, and friends and families of Cast Members – give their time, their energy and their talents to serve others during solidarity events organized by the Corporate Citizenship department.
Through their commitment, the Disney VoluntEARS play a key role in the organization of the company’s volunteer initiatives: accompanying children and families in the Disney Parks, animating fun and creative workshops, and even raising environmental awareness among participants of all ages.
The Walt Disney Company is celebrating 35 years of the Disney VoluntEARS program by inviting employees to be volunteers during the Disney VoluntEARS 35th Anniversary Global Week of Service, June 3-9, 2018. Use the hashtags #VoluntEARS to follow the events around the world week .
