Did you know AAGO is committed to giving back to the local community?

AAGO provides association members with a variety of opportunities to give back to the central Florida communities we know and love. AAGO’s annual Apartment Industry Job Shadow Day event is just one of the many ways we show our appreciation for the communities we serve. 

For the fourth year in a row, the Apartment Association of Greater Orlando (AAGO) and the AAGO Foundation, Inc. will partner with Goodwill of Central Florida, the City of Life Foundation, and Community Based Care of Central Florida to provide a hands-on job shadow experience for central Florida foster youth on Wednesday, July 11. 

On July 11th, local teens will spend the day at various AAGO member sites learning about the diverse and financially rewarding careers in the apartment industry. This annual event seeks to inspire teens transitioning out of the foster care system to explore the diverse career paths in the apartment industry. We believe this is a valuable opportunity for AAGO members to share their passion and personal success stories with local teens who would otherwise not be exposed to the exciting opportunities the apartment industry has to offer. 

“This experience makes a positive impact on dozens of young people who are exploring ways to transition out of the social services network and into meaningful lives in our community." - Allan Chernoff, COO of the City of Life Foundation. 

In addition to hosting the Apartment Industry Job Shadow Day, the AAGO Foundation works throughout the year to raise funds for local organizations that serve teens aging out of foster care, the homeless, and the nation’s veterans.
