Starbucks Youth Action 

Do you know any 16-24 years old who could use up to £1500 or up to £2000 to run a social action project in their local area?

Starbucks Youth Action (SYA) is a programme that inspires and empowers young people from across England, Scotland and Wales to make a difference in their communities, and through applying to Starbucks Youth Action for funding, enabling them to bring their ideas to life. As well as supporting the young people with the projects that mean the most to them, young people benefit from training run by UK Youth on managing a budget, working with volunteers and project management.

Before applying you will need to check that you meet the eligibility criteria:

•         You/the young person leading the project must be aged between 16 and 24

•         If selected the project leader will need to be available to attend a training day with Starbucks and UK Youth in April 2014

To apply, please complete the online application form by 9.00am on Monday 17 March 2014. When applying we ask for you to complete a separate 'Budget Sheet' showing how you will use the funding. You will need to attach this form when prompted. The budget form can be found at the bottom of the page.

Applications received on time will be acknowledged and applications received after the deadline will not be accepted. Visit the website for more information.
