May 6: Lemonade Day (all day)

All of the participating young entrepreneurs will paint Wichita Falls yellow with their lemonade stands! To prepare for Lemonade Day, youth will pair up with a mentor and work in their own personal business planning workbook. The workbook covers a multitude of valuable lessons such as goal-setting, budgeting, product pricing, marketing, customer service, repaying investors, and giving back to the community!

On May 6th, they will put their plan into action by operating their lemonade stand. At the end of the operating hour, they are encouraged to spend some, save some and share some.

The Lemonade Day experience goes beyond earning money. At the end of participation, youth will develop stronger self-confidence, and build fundamental life skills; such as goal setting, and problem-solving!

Be sure to stop by a stand (or three) and support these awesome kids!!!
