Northeast Guidance Center arrived early at Eastern Market on Saturday, June 4, to set up their annual Lemonade Day stand. Our young people from the Cornerstone program learned valuable entrepreneurial skills that will help develop character, as well as build upon their strengths and sense of self-esteem.
What is Lemonade Day?
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 an annual community-wide, educational initiative. Youth learn vauable entrepreneural skills, self-esteem and functional enrichments in a fun way.
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. In 2007, founder Michael Holthouse had a vision to empower today’s youth to become tomorrow’s entrepreneurs through helping them start, own and operate their very own business…a lemonade stand. Launched in Houston, Texas in 2007, Lemonade Day has grown from 2,700 kids in one city to 150,000 kids in 36 cities across America and Canada.
