Community Service

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 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.
