Here's your chance to be the boss!
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 12, 2018, is the 6th Annual Lemonade Day Coastal Bend, presented by the Coastal Bend Home Builders Association Parade of Homes 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 late March) to set up an official Lemonade Day stand on Saturday, May 12th!
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.
Stay tuned for Lemonade Day Coastal Bend 2018 registration and backpack pickup information.
