What do children learn?

The objective of Lemonade Day is to teach youth how to start, own and operate their own business – a lemonade stand. Children learn the entrepreneurial skills necessary to be successful in the future and become contributing members of their communities. They learn how to create a budget, set profit-making goals, serve customers, repay investors and give back to the community. For kids, one of the best parts is that after covering their expenses and paying back their investors, they can keep what they earn. We encourage them to spend some of their profit as a reward for their hard work, save some of their profit for a rainy day or to re-invest in their business, and share some of their profit with the community that supported them.

How much does it cost to participate in Lemonade Day? 

Lemonade Day is a free program for all youth. The curriculum, activities, services, products and resources of Lemonade Day are made possible by the generous donations of individuals, corporations, community organizations and foundations.

How old do you have to be to participate in Lemonade Day? 

Lemonade Day is open to youth of all ages. The curriculum is written to target youth in grades 3-5 however, the material can be adapted for older or younger audiences. What happens to the money raised on Lemonade Day? The money made at each stand on Lemonade Day belongs to the youth participants who operate that stand. 100% of what they make is their business profit. The Lemonade Day curriculum encourages them to spend some, save some, and share some.

How does my child register? 

We encourage you to register your youth participants online by visiting your city's website. Many cities also offer registration events where you can register in person. Typically, registration opens a few months before your city's Lemonade Day. The sooner you register, the more time your child will have to find a location and plan their stand. For information about registering a large group, classroom, or school, please contact your local city. To find your city's website and event calendar please visit: LemonadeDay.org What do we do after we register? After registration, depending on your city, you will receive either a printed workbook or access to the My Lemonade Day app. If you register online for printed materials, you will receive a confirmation email with instructions on where to go to pick up your materials. After mentors have registered online for My Lemonade Day, you can download the app from the app store (IOS or Android). If you register at an event, you will either receive physical materials at the event or information on where to go to access My Lemonade Day. To learn more about the My Lemonade Day app, visit our landing page, lemonadeday.org/mylemonadeday, or read our FAQ. Where is the training for Lemonade Day? The Lemonade Day curriculum walks you through everything you need to know to start your lemonade business. Families (or mentors) work through the curriculum together with their participants to make a plan, build a stand, and execute their plan on Lemonade Day. Some communities offer events leading up to Lemonade Day to help youth with the lessons, building a stand, creating their plan, etc. Visit your local Lemonade Day website for more information.
