Disney | ABC Television Group is mobilizing its division-wide resources to champion the potential of young, socially conscious individuals and their creative approach to strengthening their communities and changing the world. Through its newly launched "Summer of Creativity" initiative, Disney | ABC Television Group will commit programming content and public service announcements highlighting how creativity and action can inspire a better future.

During the week of July 13, several non-profit organizations that take creative approaches to building stronger communities will be showcased on ABC programs including "Good Morning America."

Disney | ABC Television Group's David Ambroz, Executive Director, Corporate Citizenship and Social Responsibility, said, "Across Disney, our concern for kids and families extends beyond their entertainment to the communities in which they live. 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."

A special one-hour broadcast, hosted by superstar Selena Gomez, originating from Free the Children's "We Day" 2015 event in Chicago, will spotlight young change makers that embody the "Summer of Creativity." The special will be presented Friday, August 21 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) on ABC.

ABC's eight owned television stations and participating ABC affiliates will award Youth Service America grants to non-profit organizations that offer creativity-based programs.
