Rochester youth taking part in National Lemonade Day
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – Saturday, June 11 is National Lemonade Day which teaches kids the power of entrepreneurship.
One day a year, hundreds of thousands of youth all across the United States start, own, and operate their own business: a lemonade stand.
The Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce announced that over 250 young entrepreneurs registered for Lemonade Day in the Rochester area. Participants receive a workbook that walks them through the process of creating their own Lemonade Stand.
The free program teaches them lessons like creating a budget, setting profit-earning goals, serving customers, saving money, and giving back to the community, all while gaining self-esteem for future success.
