what is do more than drink?

Do More Than Drink is a one-week campaign which sees Melbourne’s most socially conscious bars join forces with thirsty Melbournians to help Scarf continue transforming young lives.

Do More Than Drink ‘18 (Sunday 2 - 9 December) is the fourth annual campaign of its kind, with over 30 fabulous bar partners on board, including Gerald’s Bar, The Moon, Bomba, The Lincoln, Stomping Ground Beer Hall, STARWARD Distillery, Hudsons Road Wine Bar, Two Birds Brewing, The Rochester and many more.

All bar partners have generously pledged to donate $1 from every drink sold on one night of the campaign’s final weekend. They’ll also display a Do More Than Drink donation jar throughout the campaign week; punters are encouraged to throw in a few dollars to help Scarf continue running programs for young people facing barriers to work.

Do More Than Drink has a big focus on raising funds so that Scarf can continue transforming young people’s lives through awesome hospitality training, mentoring and paid work experience programs.

Do More Than Drink also aims to raise awareness about employment barriers faced by young people seeking protection, and those from refugee and migrant backgrounds. Humanitarian migrants face unemployment rates of up to 43% compared to the national average of around 6%. Barriers to employment are complex and intertwined, and include limited English, lack of Australian work experience and local references, impacts of past trauma on health and wellbeing, low confidence and discrimination. Scarf has been working hard to break down these barriers for the past eight years

Finally, Do More Than Drink offers awesome work experience opportunities to recent graduates from Scarf programs.

So, check out the huge list of bar partners, grab a bunch of friends, and get ready to enjoy a beverage in support of Scarf between Sunday 2 - 9 December!  

When you Do More Than Drink, you help create a world where all young people have equitable employment opportunities.

 Bottoms up!
