Starbucks Youth Action

    Apply by 17th March for Starbucks Youth Action 2014

    This programme inspires, empowers and supports young people from across the UK to make a difference in their communities by applying to Starbucks Youth Action for funding to get their projects off the ground. As well as supporting the young people to bring to life the projects that mean the most to them, we also offer training to young people on managing a budget, working with volunteers and project management. At the end of our third successful year we have supported over 150 youth-led projects around the UK and Ireland. Whether it is funding boxing equipment in East London, gift bags for children in hospitals in Hampshire or introducing bee-hives to an inner-city park in Manchester, we are committed to supporting young people to make their communities better places to be.

    1. Queerdiff – Cardiff

      The Queerdiff project coordinates meets and support groups for LGBT+ young people in and around the city of Cardiff.

    2. Muffins Dream – south

      The Muffins Dream Foundation was set up this project last year with the mission to ‘provide chances for children and young people with long term illness and disability to lead a happy life’.

    3. Frenford Summer tournament – London

      Starbucks Youth Action helped to fund Frenford Summer Tournament - a series of football tournaments for young people aged 8-21 in the local community.

    4. Fit2Box – London

      Fit2Box is a non-contact boxing fitness workout session – coaching self-defence, keeping active, improving confidence and more. Fit2Box gets young people out of their comfort zone – overcoming their lack of confidence, self-belief and insecurities – to exercise and try their best, instead of sitting back watching TV or playing video games.
