Disney ABC Television Group Introduces Youth-Focused Service Initiative

Disney ABC Television Group launched its Summer of Creativity initiative on Monday — a movement to support and inspire socially-conscious youth.

In addition to programming relevant content and public service announcements, the media conglomerate is offering 100 $500 grants to support individual service projects.

“Across Disney, our concern for kids and families extends beyond their entertainment to the communities in which they live,” said David Ambroz, executive director of corporate citizenship and social responsibility at the Disney ABC Television Group. “Through our group’s powerful reach and impact, we can inspire and support individuals to create change in their lives and the world around them.”

Programming events associated with the campaign include a spotlight on “Good Morning America” in July for several exemplary non-profits, and a one-hour ABC special in August hosted by Selena Gomez.

Grant applications are due Aug. 10, and can be found online.
