Where We Work: Italy

We supported young people here as creative and innovative contributors to local society.

Under our partnership with Nokia, Make a Connection engaged young Italians as active members of their community. Youth groups received training, small grants, mentorship, and other support services to help turn their innovative ideas into reality. Known locally IDEE x FARE the initiative was launched in September 2006 in Milan, Rome, and Catania. We also supported young change-makers here through YouthActionNet® and StarbucksTM Shared PlanetTM Youth Action grants.
