7. What makes this program unique?

Famous PEOPLE Players celebrates old-fashioned values and is focused on PEOPLE. Daily, they challenge themselves and those around to look deeper to see what they are capable of. Once segregated, they now explore and develop life skills and in a technology driven world, these personal interactions are slowly being lost. Here, you will be challenged to go outside of your comfort zone and to discover who you are and what you are capable of doing. Dream BIG! As Famous PEOPLE Players’ Founder Diane Dupuy famously says, “Through one dream, a thousand dreams unfold.”
