The youth of today are the business leaders, community representatives, and social advocates of tomorrow. So let’s support them now! It’s as easy as buying a cup of lemonade on May 6, 2018, during Boerne Lemonade Day. The event is geared to inspiring Boerne’s young people to take ownership of their lives and become productive members of society by teaching them how to start, own, and operate their own business. In the process, they will learn about the financial workings of running a business as well as vital life skills like goal setting and problem-solving.
From Lemons to Life Skills
The participants keep all proceeds from their lemonade stands and are encouraged to save a little, share a little, and spend a little.
This national youth entrepreneurship program is set to make a splash in Boerne. It’s free to participate, and the curriculum, activities, services, products, and resources are funded by generous public, private, and corporate donations.
While the Lemonade Day curriculum is geared toward youth from grades 3 through 5, the lessons are ageless, and all are welcome to participate. Boerne’s participants range in age from 5 to 12 and are all eager to get started.
Lemonade Day is a fantastic opportunity for Boerne parents, teachers, and mentors to work closely with the youth in our community to facilitate their learning, enrich their self-esteem, and have fun. You can work with your young entrepreneurs to make a business plan, determine a location, build a stand, and get everything headed in the right direction: toward success.
Details of the Day
Though Lemonade Day takes place all across the nation, the details may vary by community. Boerne’s Lemonade Day is on Sunday, May 6, 2018, from noon to 5 p.m. You’ll find stands located all over Boerne on this date, so stash some cash in your pockets and head out to support these young go-getters.
