Community Relations

The Disney VoluntEARS

The Disney VoluntEARS programme

The Disney VoluntEARS programme was originally created in California in 1983 under a different name, the Disneyland Action Team. Its aim was to meet the needs of Cast Members who wanted to help their community.
The group at Disneyland Paris was first called Club Bénévole [Volunteers Club]. Then in 2005 each of the Disney outreach teams around the world adopted the Disney VoluntEARS name to recognise their shared goals.

Disney VoluntEARS team members

'There is an amazing sense of family among the Disney VoluntEARS', according to Eric Pirès-Augère, in charge of Community Relations. Listen to his testimony:

The 2013 Disney VoluntEARS awards

The Disneyland Paris Community Relations team organises over 1,000 actions per year, made possible through the generosity of Cast Members who volunteer. In recognition of this, The Walt Disney Company appoints a Disney VoluntEAR of the Year and a Disney VoluntEAR Team of the Year.

Andrea Mazzola, an internal event specialist, was named France's Disney VoluntEAR of the Year for 2013 to celebrate her constant involvement since she joined the company.
The Disney VoluntEARS Team of the Year trophy for 2013 was awarded to the Entertainment and Costuming teams in recognition for the musical show they produced specially for Cast Members.  Those who wanted to see the performance were asked to make donations to a local food bank. This led to a total of 800 kilogrammes in goods being donated to the Seine-et-Marne Restos du Coeur (http://77.restosducoeur.org/).

 

EARS to You

In 2012 Disneyland Paris VoluntEARS carried out more than 8,446 hours of voluntary outreach work. To show its gratitude for that commitment, The Walt Disney Company developed the EARS to You operation. The programme consists in matching financial donations with the number of volunteer hours donated throughout the year, and programme participants are invited to identify non-profit organisations to receive the donations.
