Starbucks Foundation partnered with Junior Achievement USA to support three Diversity and Inclusion projects to close learning gaps and provide financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship programs to students in communities across the U.S. Starbucks volunteers deliver JA curriculum serving as role models and mentors to students in their local community. For Spanish-speaking students, Starbucks is supporting the translations of four JA elementary programs, enabling students to feel included and maximize their JA learning experiences. In addition, Starbucks support provides Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion experts to conduct an analysis of JA learning experiences for JA programming in grades K – 6. Starbucks’ support enables JA’s education experiences serve a diverse group of students, ensuring ALL students can achieve economic success.
JA USA gratefully acknowledges the Starbucks foundation for their support of JA USA's DEI efforts through their program support.
