Are you involved in a youth group in Cardiff?

February 23, 2012 3:02 PM

Jenny Willott MP is encouraging youth organisations in Cardiff Central to apply for Starbucks Youth Action in 2012, a youth community engagement programme that has been rolled out in conjunction with UK Youth across Cardiff.

Starbucks Youth Action is a youth investment programme for 16-24 years that is all about empowering local young people to identify what needs to change in their community and develop a project to bring about that change. Through seed funding, training and support provided by its youth charities and volunteers from Starbucks, last year 52 youth-led projects across ten UK cities were supported encompassing everything from youth mentoring schemes to arts projects for disabled young people.

In 2012 a total of £100,000 investment will be available across the ten participating cities, including up to £10,000 of seed funding available across Cardiff which we anticipate would be shared across 4-5 projects.

The application process for 2012 is now open with the deadline for applications on Monday 5 March. Full details of the programme and how to apply can be found at
