FAIRHOPE, Ala. - Lemonade Day is expanding to the Eastern Shore. Lemonade day is a well-established youth entrepreneurship program that teaches leadership and business skills by encouraging kids to launch their very own business -- a lemonade stand. The Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce is bringing the Lemonade Day experience to kids in Daphne, Fairhope and Spanish Fort.
Who: Open to all 3rd – 6th Graders on the Eastern Shore
What: Lemonade Day Eastern Shore
When: Saturday, November 6, 2021
Mentors guide participants through the youth entrepreneurship lessons with provided workbooks and take participants through the journey of planning, launching and operating a business. The valuable lessons of Lemonade Day include setting a goal, making a plan, working the plan and achieving their dreams.
Once a youth pays their investor back, they keep all the money they earn and are encouraged to spend some, save some, and share some of their profit.
The impact of a program like Lemonade Day is four-fold: 1) Teach financial literacy to kids 2) Promote entrepreneurship, which is key to jumpstart economic growth 3) Teach kids to be responsible and self-reliant and to contribute to their community’s development 4) Foster mentorship and bring families together
Anyone and everyone can be involved in Lemonade Day! Young entrepreneurs with lemonade stands need mentors, investors, business partners, great locations and customers! Sponsors and volunteers are also needed to make Lemonade Day a success. You can call the Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce at 251-928-6387 to get involved.
