Lemonade Day® Offers Free Youth Entrepreneurship Educational Program to Adult Leaders for Kids in North America

Lemonopolis® Online Curriculum Includes Tips and Tools from Successful "Kid Entrepreneurs" to Teach Them How to Launch Their Own Business

Lemonade Day, a nationwide youth entrepreneurship program, and its generous partner Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers® are offering a FREE, FUN and ENGAGING remote educational resource — Lemonopolis! Lemonade Day star alumni who are now successful "kid entrepreneurs" are also supporting this initiative through a series of inspirational videos.

Lemonopolis teaches kids business and character-building skills that help them address adversity with an entrepreneurial mindset. The COVID-19 pandemic is one of these challenges that provides kids of all ages an opportunity to "make lemonade out of lemons."

The Lemonopolis curriculum aligns with core educational standards and is centered on the Search Institute’s 40 Developmental Assets® framework that provides positive support and strengths that young people need to succeed. Lemonopolis includes a mentor guide, along with videos and lessons related to goal setting, business planning, budgeting, marketing and other considerations for launching any type of business — not just a lemonade stand!
