Disney Family Volunteering Reward Program

It’s a new year, which means new opportunities to activate families in volunteering! Through the Disney Family Volunteering Reward Program, each calendar year, eligible nonprofits and schools can earn up to 20 tickets to Disney Parks for hosting family volunteer projects. So, even if you earned tickets in 2017, your slate is clean and you can begin earning again in 2018. 

There are so many ways to engage families in service, including upcoming days of service: 

  • Good Deeds Day – April 15
  • National Volunteer Week – April 15-22
  • Global Youth Service Day – April 20-22

If you’re looking for ideas, generationOn, the youth division of Points of Light, has hundreds of family-friendly project ideas to help you get started. 

“It’s great that youth’s parents are trying to instill the importance of volunteering, and the lesson is more impactful when a family can participate together. One family even had their baby be involved as their mother carried them as she volunteered. I heard the youth talking to the baby about what was happening during the volunteer event. So many families approached me to share that they appreciated the opportunity to both volunteer as a family and to be able to create something that would bring another family joy during the holidays.”
