Northeast Guidance Center kids break record in Lemonade sales!
Northeast Guidance Center arrived early at Eastern Market Shed 3 #321 on Saturday, June 3, to set up their annual Lemonade Day stand. Our young people from the Cornerstone program learned valuable entrepreneurial skills that help to develop character, as well as build upon their strengths and sense of self-esteem. A contribution from the proceeds was made to NEGC to help end the stigma of mental health.
What is Lemonade Day?
Lemonade Day is a 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 to educate many children in cities across America and Canada.
