Orlando Cares


Orlando Cares, Mayor Buddy Dyer’s Cities of Service Initiative, address two key community challenges- Improving Youth Literacy and Increasing Community Safety- by mobilizing citizens as volunteers who make service a part of the solution. Through a collaborative process, hundreds of stakeholders helped design Orlando Cares. Primarily funded with a Cities of Service Impact Volunteering Grant, Orlando Cares is a partnership with the Corporation for National Community Service.
