Name: National Lemonade Day
What better way to introduce a child to entrepreneurship and the business and life skills required for success than through real life examples? Lemonade Day teaches youth how to start, own and operate their very own business – by setting up a lemonade stand. This nation-wide annual event gives kids the opportunity to learn about business skills, responsibility, financial literacy, goal setting and teamwork.
Since its launch in Houston, Texas in 2007, with 2700 kids participating, Lemonade Day has reached over one million children in cities across North America and beyond.
You’ll never look at a lemonade stand in the same way again.
