Help Us Empower Today’s Kids to Become Tomorrow’s Entrepreneurs!

The Problem

America was built on the back of small business. Entrepreneurs take risks believing they can realize their dream if they work hard, take responsibility and act as good stewards of their resources.

How we solve it

Together with partners like yourself, Lemonade Day is empowering the next generation with the life skills, mentor-ship, and real-world experience needed to achieve their own American Dream, one lemonade stand at a time. Partner with Lemonade Day today and sponsor a child, a classroom, or even a school or youth organization. Help us empower today’s youth to become tomorrow’s entrepreneurs.


*As part of a national initiative and program of the Alaska Small Business Development Center (Alaska SBDC) through the UAA Business Enterprise Institute (BEI), Lemonade Day Alaska is an annual Alaskan experiential event that teaches K-12 children how to plan and launch their own business through a simple model: a lemonade stand.

Dear Entrepreneurs and Families -

We regret to announce that due to the unprecedented impact of the coronavirus pandemic across the nation, and our focus on ensuring the health and safety of all of our Lemonade Day entrepreneurs, the 10th anniversary of Lemonade Day Alaska planned for June 27th has been canceled.

To our stewards, community partners, entrepreneurs, friends, and families - thank you for your dedicated efforts to youth entrepreneurship in our state. Thank you for bringing passion, creativity, determination, and fun to the simple idea of running a lemonade stand. Especially in times of a global emergency, these efforts are not lost on us and the continuous championship of financial literacy and a passion for youth entrepreneurship made this a difficult, but the right, choice.

The health and safety of our participants, families, volunteers, and supporters remain our highest priority. We look forward to helping young entrepreneurs “stir up sweet success” in their lemonade stands for an incredible Lemonade Day Alaska 2021.

Take care and stay well.
