Reserve a seat to meet a youth employment and entrepreneurship expert at a Starbucks store near you on April 24.


As part of our ongoing commitment to creating pathways to economic opportunity for youth around the world, Starbucks in the Middle East and North Africa introduced Opportunity Café in April of 2016 as an initiative to bring local youth and employment & entrepreneurship experts, together over a cup of coffee.

Through Opportunity Café, Starbucks stores across the region host professional skill-building workshops for youth on employability and entrepreneurship subjects, to help equip young people with skills they need in order to succeed in today’s challenging local and global economies.

Opportunity Café comes as a continuation to Starbucks’s Global Month of Service, which takes place around the world every year during the month of April. To learn more about the Global Month of Service, please click here.


CV Writing Edition

Millions of young people across the Middle East and North Africa region do not have access to employment opportunities, and they find themselves unable to become economically active in their communities. A youth survey conducted as part of the 2016 Opportunity Café revealed that young people consider “poor CV writing skills” as a primary obstacle on their pathway to employment.

Therefore, on April 24, 16 of our stores across Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Oman, Egypt, Jordan, and Morocco markets will be hosting training workshops for youth on CV Writing and Job Preparedness skills. The training workshops will be delivered in partnership with, Education For Employment, and M. H. Alshaya Co. Reserve your seat to attend this workshop in your area.

Startup Edition

With the rise of youth entrepreneurship culture in the Middle East, many youth look at starting-up their own businesses as their alternative pathway to economic opportunity, and achieve prosperity for themselves and their communities. However, in order to succeed in this challenging journey, young people need the right tools to translate their ideas into successful and profitable businesses.

Therefore, on April 24, 12 of our stores across UAE, Qatar, Kuwait and Lebanon markets will be hosting training workshops for youth on business start-up skills. The training workshops will be delivered by partnership with AMIDEAST and Silatech. Reserve your seat to attend this workshop in your area.
