The Starbucks Youth Action funding programme, which will support projects in Dublin and Belfast, is seeking applications for 2012.
The programme aims to inspire and empower young people from Dublin and Belfast and a number of UK cities to make a difference in their communities through seed funding and volunteer work from Starbucks staff. The programme also offers training to young people on managing a budget, working with volunteers and project management.
The programme offers funding of up to €2000 to groups that work with people aged 16-24 who have a good idea for a project that will have an impact on young people and the local community.
In 2011 Starbucks awarded more than 100 grants totalling $2.6 million to organisations around the world to inspire and support youth action in their local markets.
Starbucks’ original goal was to engage 50,000 young people to innovate and create action in their communities by 2015 and this target was achieved some years ago.
Groups can find application details on the Irish Youth Foundation’s website. Completed applications should be sent to StarbucksYouthAction@iyf.ie. The closing date is 5 March 2012.
