BE AN ENTREPRENEUR! When you were young, you probably had a lemonade stand. The lemonade stand is iconic in the U.S., bringing back memories for most of us of warm summer days and the joy of seeing those dimes and nickels accumulate in our piggy bank. For most children, it’s their very first venture into entrepreneurship.
PLAN TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOAL Kids may have had a lemonade stand before but did they set a goal, make a plan and follow that plan to achieve success? Lemonade Day will help them track their expenses and set a price that will allow them to make a profit and achieve their personal goal.
KIDS FALL IN LOVE WITH BUSINESS With our unique approach, kids experience the feeling of earning real money, using 100% of their profit to spend, save and share based on their own goals. They build self-esteem and new mindsets that can propel them to success they likely would not have pursued otherwise.
LEMONADE DAY Lemonade Day is a fun, experiential learning program to teach youth how to start, own and operate their own business through a lemonade stand. It is a great way for parents and kids to experience the 14 steps to starting and running your own business. The learning culminates with youth putting their business plan into action and running their Lemonade Stand on national Lemonade Day (or a day of their choosing) when hundreds of thousands kid across the United States and Canada open a lemonade stand for business.
EARN LEMONS Earn lemons for watching a video, completing an interactive lesson and taking a short quiz. Prepare a budget and go shopping, build a stand, create a website and share your thoughts and creations with others.
Lemonade Day helps kids become the business owners, social advocates, community leaders and forward-thinking citizens of tomorrow. Join in the movement to change the future of our youth by showing them the possibilities.
