Starbucks Youth Action Grants open for applications


Starbucks and UK Youth have launched the Starbucks Youth Action Grants scheme. Grants of up to £1,000 are available to inspire and empower young people to make a difference in their communities and to help them bring their ideas to life.

Are you working with young people aged 16 – 24 who are not in education or employment? Would you like to support them to run a social action programme with funding of up to £1,000, with an additional contribution for youth workers’ support time? Then you are invited to apply to Starbucks Youth Action.

Two young people need to lead the project and engage a further 50 young people throughout the course of the project. The young people will need to have a youth worker/training organisation able to support them throughout the project.

They are looking for projects that provide a positive benefit to the local community and that look to enhance the young leaders’ employability and leadership skills.

The programme is primarily focused on young people not in education or employment, although strong applications from other applicants will be considered.

This is a rolling programme until March 2016. There are monthly deadlines between now and March next year with the first being 3 August 2015 and the last 7 March 2016.
