Online Registration for Lemonade Day Chicago
Registration for Lemonade Day 2013 is open!
Up to 10,000 students across Chicago will be setting up stands and launching their small businesses! Find out how you can support them on our VOLUNTEER page.
Help spread the word about Lemonade Day Chicago by joining the Community Action Board.
Schools and community organizations that target youth are encouraged to apply to reserve program materials and schedule a kick-off meeting to determine how to best implement the program at each location. The program can be offered before or after school, during the school day, or as a parent-led take home activity. For more information on how to get involved, contact Nick Prestemon.
We host a variety of trainings for instructors to help them teach the Lemonade Day curriculum. Instructors are encouraged to collaborate and leverage the best practices being used across our network of partner organizations.
The Lemonade Day curriculum empowers students to take ownership of each step of the business plan development process. Students learn how to set goals, develop a business plan, secure start-up funds, create a unique marketable product, select safe locations, make a profit, and report their results.
Student teams from each school and partner organization will compete in our Best Tasting Lemonade Contest. This downtown Chicago event will also highlight our sponsors and promote lemonade stand locations for Lemonade Day.
On Lemonade Day, students become entrepreneurs and launch their own lemonade stands across the city. We mobilize community members to purchase lemonade, tell their friends, and support the work of young entrepreneurs.
In Chicago Lemonade Day is presented by the Future Founders Foundation, a chicago-based nonprofit that offers engaging project-based learning opportunities to students in 3rd through 12th grades. In addition to Lemonade Day, the Future Founders Foundation operates two other programs: Connect to the Future connects middle and high school students with mentors to help them explore various career opportunities and develop skills for success, and Future Founders, a program that encourages high school students to become entrepreneurs, work for entrepreneurs, or bring an entrepreneurial spirit to corporations.
