Squeezing lemons with middle schoolers on Lemonade Day

This Sunday, May 6th, is Lemonade Day – a day where over 2000 middle schoolers will be building and running their own lemonade stands under the mentorship of Houston-area business owners.

Our ‘Lemonade Lessons”, along with the help of a Responsible Adult, will experientially teach participating students about budgets, securing investors, identifying ‘retail’ locations, advertising and making money. Kids will also learn character-building lessons such as customer service, saving money, and giving back to the community. Oh, and of course – how to make lemonade!

I’m not involved this year, but think it’s a really cool idea. Be sure to stop by a lemonade stand this wekeend to support Houston’s newest young entrepreneurs (oh – and don’t drink the warm ‘lemonade’). Photo via Flickr thanks to jamieanne

    Loved seeing all the kids and supporting parents out this Sunday. I just so happen to pull the convertible out this weekend and it was warm so I stop to support several stand in the neighborhood. It was a blast even seeing competing stands across the street from each other..

    :) That’s awesome! I wasn’t so fortunate, although I would’ve gladly purchased a frosty citrus beverage from someone…
