What is Lemonade Day?
Lemonade Day is a fun, experiential program that teaches kids how to start, own and operate their very own business: a lemonade stand. By running their stand, they learn the business and life skills needed to set a goal, make a plan and work the plan to achieve their dreams. Lemonade Day’s program builds self-reliance and financial literacy and introduces important business and entrepreneurial skills. Since 2007, more than 1 million youth have participated in Lemonade Day in more than 50 cities across the United States, Canada and South Africa. Lemonade Day allows youth to experience a new level of confidence and see new possibilities for their future – as the leaders, volunteers, and forward-thinking citizens of tomorrow.
