About Us

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.

We currently have 6 programs that serve low-income area children either helping to build literacy skills, career development, or teach about gardening and nutrition.

Our programs are:

Mayor Buddy's Book Club

The Garden

Preschool Ambassadors

Path Finders

Third Grade Reads Powered by Read 2 Succeed
