Community Service

Every Starbucks store is a part of a community, and we’re committed to strengthening neighborhoods wherever we do business.

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 (employees) and customers dedicate their time and energy to create positive change in their local neighborhoods. Service projects vary in size and focus. We encourage partners to lead and participate in projects that align to our commitment to disconnected young people.

We believe the impact of service is on both the community and those volunteering. For the volunteer, service fosters increased empathy and connection. Customers, community members and partners are invited to join in service throughout the year. In the U.S. and Canada, you can find nearby projects to join or lead on the Starbucks Community Service Website 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.
