Lemonade Day is a free, fun, experiential learning program that teaches youth how to start, own and operate their own business – a lemonade stand. They keep all the money they make and are encouraged to spend some, save some and share some.
Lemonade Day Austin, a program of the Entrepreneurs Foundation of Central Texas, began in 2009. Since the first year, they have grown from 2,500 registrations to 20,000+ kids in 2012 – over 46,000 kids in 4 years, selling more than $1 million of lemonade and donating over $500k to charity.
The foremost objective of Lemonade Day is to empower youth to take ownership of their lives and become productive members of society – the business leaders, social advocates, volunteers, and forward thinking citizens of tomorrow.
There are many rules and regulations by the City of Austin when it comes to setting up the lemonade stand, including City of Austin Health Guidelines / Food Handling at Beverage Stand Operations, so I recommend visiting the following site for details: http://austin.lemonadeday.org/city-story/
