Lemonade Day is coming to Northern Alberta to help empower today’s youth to be tomorrow’s entrepreneurs.
Lemonade Day is a free, fun, experiential learning program that teaches youth how to start, own and operate their own business–a lemonade stand.
This program helps children of kindergarten age and all the way up to 17 years of age.
Participants learn how to start and manage a lemonade stand and sell their lemonade on June 17, Lemonade Day.
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 was brought to Northern Alberta in 2018 by one Community Futures office and was offered to participants in their region. Since then, Lemonade Day has spread to 12 Northern Alberta Community Futures regions.
Each child who registers receives a backpack with an Entrepreneur Workbook or access to the “My Lemonade Day” app and attends Lemonade University where Community Futures instructors teach them the lessons of Lemonade Day, like creating budgets, setting profit-making goals, serving customers, repaying investors and giving back to the community.
Along the way, participants acquire skills in goal-setting, problem solving and gain self-esteem critical for future success—all while having fun and being creative.
Lemonade Day kids keep all the profits they make, but the program encourages them to spend some, save some and share some. In 2022, Lemonade Day participants donated over $12,000 to local charities of their choosing.
