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.

Each child that registers receives a backpack with an Entrepreneur Workbook that teaches 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, they acquire skills in goal-setting, problem solving, and gain self-esteem critical for future success.

On Lemonade Day, kids across our region set up lemonade stands and try their hand at business ownership!  This is a great opportunity for kids to explore entrepreneurship by managing their own business.

For more information, please visit our Lemonade Day website at lemonadeday.org/northern-alberta.
