About BOLT Leadership Program at Disney

The Pegasus Springs Education Collective presents ‘Building Our Leaders of Tomorrow‘ (BOLT), a leadership program for students grades 3-12.

The Pegasus Springs leadership team uses the Walt Disney World Parks and Conference Center as a classroom to teach leadership curriculum to students in grades 3-12. Focusing on the key question of ‘How does a leader make a positive impact?’, the Pegasus Springs staff focus on providing the building blocks of leadership to inspire students to return to their schools and communities empowered to make a difference.

The BOLT programs are designed to build upon each other as students return each year to expand their learning and leadership skills. Whether your child is just starting out in one of our programs or has been returning for many years, the Pegasus Springs staff brings innovative, creative, leadership building opportunities to your child in the most magical place on earth.

Our program is designed for students in 3rd- 12th Grades. Your student will participate in one of our three levels: Elementary, Middle School or High School. The daily schedule and select programs will vary slightly per the grade level of the student attendee. However, a typical program concludes around 3:00pm each day allowing groups and families time to enjoy the parks together.
