The Starbucks Foundation
Supporting a generation of young leaders to champion diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging
City Year and The Starbucks Foundation are working together to advance educational equity while empowering a generation of young adults leading the way toward a more just world.
A grant from The Starbucks Foundation is supporting City Year’s implementation of strategies that promote diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging. With help from this grant, City Year is building and delivering promising practices and training programs to its staff and City Year’s 3,000 AmeriCorps members, who serve full time as student success coaches in more than 300 systemically under-resourced schools.
City Year, The Starbucks Foundation, and Starbucks partners across the country have been working together for more than 10 years. Our partnership is part of The Starbucks Foundation’s more than 20-year history of creating pathways to lifelong opportunity for youth in systemically under-resourced communities, including a recent initiative to support Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) youth.
