Welcome to Orlando

Orlando is known for its sunshine and world-famous amusement parks, but it’s also one of the fastest-growing U.S. cities. City Year Orlando is helping to develop the next generation of leaders who will build a stronger democracy and a more competitive workforce.

Living in Orlando

Orlando’s bustling economy, year-round tourism attractions and pleasant weather make it an ideal city to serve in.

  • One-bedroom apartments in Orlando begin at about $750/month. Many AmeriCorps members have roommates and live in the Millenia, Metrowest and UCF areas.
  • Orlando is a drivable city, making a personal vehicle convenient but not necessary. Biking trails are prevalent and public transportation is available. AmeriCorps members receive a LYNX bus pass. The SunRail commuter train is also an option.
  • There are plenty of cheap activities and food options around the city, or look into Orlando’s food assistance program.
