Located just east of downtown Dallas, Deep Ellum is considered the arts and entertainment headquarters for the entire city. Corps members living in Deep Ellum enjoy affordable apartments with live music venues, art galleries, and local restaurants right outside their front doors. A new public rail station connects the neighborhood to destinations including Downtown, Uptown, and Fair Park.
The neighboring cities of Dallas and Fort Worth are known respectively as the Southwest’s financial center and cultural gateway. Both cities are exciting places to live that are forward-thinking yet rooted in history. Corps members in the region teach in over 60 traditional and charter public schools in the Dallas and Fort Worth Independent School Districts.
In Downtown Dallas, the city's historic buildings and museums harmoniously coexist with new hotels, shops, restaurants, and businesses. For recreation, Dallas offers the nation's largest urban arts district, more shopping and dining opportunities per capita than anywhere else in America, more than 400 parks, and legendary professional sports teams. Dallas is also a leader among cities that are significantly reducing their carbon footprint.
Home to the oldest stock show and rodeo in the country, Fort Worth is a vibrant community in which Texas history, the arts, and cowboy culture abound. Together, Dallas and Fort Worth offer corps members big city experiences for the cost of living of a much smaller market. Diverse and affordable housing, from single-family homes to high-rise condos, is available to corps members throughout the region.
