Community members and Starbucks partners worldwide participated in record numbers during our seventh annual Global Month of Service.
Our Aspiration: 100% of stores globally participating in service annually by 2020.
We believe in the power of the coffeehouse to bring people together. Our stores allow Starbucks partners (employees) and customers to connect and tap into shared passions to provide a helping hand and create meaningful opportunities that can strengthen individuals and communities.
Throughout the year, our partners and customers dedicate their time and energy to create positive change in their neighborhoods. We encourage partners to lead and participate in projects that align to key areas of focus, including support of opportunity youth and transitioning veterans, environmental impact and alleviating hunger.
Customers, community members and partners are invited to join in service throughout the year. In the U.S., you can find nearby projects to join at Starbucks.VolunteerMatch.org or connect with a barista at your local Starbucks. With your support, we can keep making a positive impact—one person, one neighborhood at a time.
Starbucks wants its workers to play a role in helping their communities. That being the case, the Seattle-based coffee giant is testing a program that allows some employees to spend half of their on-the-clock hours volunteering at non-profit organizations, according to CNN Money. As a bonus for the ‘Bucks, this program could lead to less turnover. Vice president of global social impact at Starbucks Virginia Tenpenny says if employees are “engaged in communities and they feel connected, they’re going to stay with Starbucks longer.”
