|Lemonade Day is Approaching!
Lemonade Day is a nation-wide event that teaches kids the skills they need to be successful in the future. Youth learn to set goals, develop a business plan, establish a budget, seek investors, provide customer service, and give back to the community. Lemonade Day is the perfect opportunity for a community to show kids they care and train the next generation of entrepreneurs through a free, fun, engaging, experiential activity!Lemonade Day is May 2, 2010. Anyone and everyone can get involved. Young entrepreneurs that have lemonade stands need adult supervision, sponsors, investors, employees, and customers.Communities can register for an official Lemonade Day stand and participate in the event. Through sponsorships, companies can donate or become a partner. Schools can also get involved by teaching youth about entrepreneurship.
All the money earned at the lemonade stands is kept by the young entrepreneurs. In the spirit of a true business, they are encouraged to open a savings account, pay back investors, and make a further investment in their community by donating a portion of their profits to a charity of their choice.

Happy Lemonade Day!
