Lemonade Day is a free, fun, experiential learning program that teaches youth how to start, own and operate their own business – a lemonade stand. It began in Houston, Texas in 2007. Since then it has grown from 2,700 kids to 200,000 kids in 31 cities across America and Canada in 2013.
In Northeast Ohio we have grown from 250 participants in 2011 to 1800 in 2013. We partner with 34 schools and organizations to teach the curriculum, which is aligned with common core standards. The program is offered in schools, youth groups, after school and summer camps.
The foremost objective of Lemonade Day is to empower youth to take ownership of their lives and become productive members of society – the business leaders, social advocates, volunteers, and forward thinking citizens of tomorrow.
