“Spend a little, Save a little, & Share a little”

Kids keep all the money they make.

What is Lemonade Day?

In 2007, founder Michael Holthouse had a vision to empower today’s youth to become tomorrow’s entrepreneurs through helping them start, own and operate their very own business…a lemonade stand. Lemonade Day is a strategic 14-step process that walks youth from a dream to a business plan, while teaching them the same principles required to start any big company. Inspiring kids to work hard and make a profit, they are also taught to spend some, save some and share some by giving back to their community.

Since it’s launch in 2007 in Houston Texas, Lemonade Day has grown from serving 2,700 kids in one city to 1 million children across North America. With the help of partners like Google for Entrepreneurs, Lemonade Day will continue to spark the spirit of entrepreneurship and empower youth to set goals, work hard, and achieve their dreams.

Educators & Schools

Lemonade Day is even in the classroom! Follow the strategic step-by-step process to get your students involved in entrepreneurship and financial literacy.

Lemonade Day is the perfect after school club, or whole class experiential learning, hands-on project. If you are looking for a relief from the standardized testing season, Lemonade Day is a project that fits the bill!
