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 is a nationwide program that began in Houston, Texas in 2007. 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. Lemonade Day empowers today’s youth to become tomorrow’s entrepreneurs!
Saturday, May 13, 2017, is the 5th Annual Lemonade Day Coastal Bend, presented by Kleberg Bank and organized by the United Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce Foundation. Coastal Bend youth of all ages, from pre-K through high school, can register (beginning March 29, 2017) to set up an official Lemonade Day stand on Saturday, May 13th!
Each registered participant receives a free backpack and entrepreneur workbook to guide them through the lessons of Lemonade Day. Throughout the lessons, youth will learn to set a goal, create a budget, find an investor, advertise their stand, make healthy lemonade, provide customer service, give back to the community and more! Along the way, participants acquire skills in goal-setting, problem-solving, entrepreneurship and financial literacy.
2017 Lemonade Day Coastal Bend registration and backpack pickup locations will be announced soon.
