The coffee chain’s Canadian operation confirmed it will commit 10 per cent of all store hires to at-risk young people.

    For a long time, Starbucks has had a program with my organization, Pacific Community Resources Society, call the Baristas Training Program. The program operates in Vancouver and Surrey and has been providing youth with multiple barriers training in life and works skills and then the youth get a work experience at a Starbucks store. Many get hired on, others go back to school or find other jobs. The youth come with a lot of challenges but there have been many life changing success stories as a result. Not many businesses would have been willing to take the risk but Starbucks has been there for over 10 years and more than 500 youth graduates.
