Lemonade Day is a free, fun, experiential learning program that teaches kids how to start, own and operate their very own business – a lemonade stand. Anyone and everyone can be involved in Lemonade Day, though children operating their own Lemonade Day Businesses should be between school age and 18 years of age. Participants will have access to a host of resources, including mentors, investors, business partners and customers.

          Fast Facts about Lemonade Day:
