Lemonade Day Houston
Lemonade Day was launched by the Houston-based non-profit organization, Prepared 4 Life in 2007. This free program for kids provides K-12 youth with the educational tools they need to start, own, and operate their very own lemonade stands. Youth learn how to create budgets, secure investors, select a site, serve customers, set profit-making goals, repay investors, and give back to the community. They have the opportunity to open their first business and show the community what they’ve learned. By starting their own business, kids gain valuable entrepreneurial skills infused with life skills such as character development, empowerment, and financial freedom. Lemonade Day sets them on a path of financial learning and goal setting that can continue throughout their lives.
