Youth Lemonade Day is a free, community-wide, entrepreneurial education program developed to teach youth, ages 5-18, how to start, own and run their own business. Youth work with their parents, teachers, business mentors, community and organization leaders, coaches and others through a 10-step guided curriculum that takes them from a “dream to reality.”
