During 2011, UK Youth, together with Starbucks, will be rolling out a program called 'Youth Action' in major cities across the UK and Ireland. The program will offer young people, who have ideas of how to improve their communities, the opportunity to access up to £10,000 seed funding and volunteer time from local Starbucks partners (employees) to help realise their ambitions.
UK Youth will be supporting the program by offering skills training and advice to young people, and both Starbucks and UK Youth hope that 'Youth Action' will inspire future community leaders to continue to make a difference.
Young people who submit a grant application form will need to attend a Community Change training day which will be run by UK Youth and will give them the skills and knowledge to complete the second stage application form.
