Employer Flexible is proud to have taken part in Lemonade Day, created by Prepared 4 Life, a fun and experiential learning program where communities across the nation unite to teach youth how to start, own and operate their own business through a lemonade stand. There are two distinct components of Lemonade Day.
First, there is a month-long learning experience through which a child and a caring adult exercise a step-by-step process of starting a business. This month-long process has proven to have a dramatic impact on a child’s understanding of how to be an entrepreneur in any industry. The second component is the actual implementation of the business, which takes place on Lemonade Day, held annually on the first Sunday in May. Literally thousands of children open their stand for business with support from their community. In the six years since Lemonade Day’s inception, the program has grown in Houston from 2,700 to 54,000 youth participating and has attracted attention from city leaders across the nation. In 2011, over 65,000 kids in 30 other U.S. cities also experienced Lemonade Day.
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.
