Those of us over 30 remember having a lemonade stand as a kid. It was a rite of passage. Nowadays, in many neighborhoods, you would be hard-pressed to find kids out on the sidewalk, waving down potential customers from their lemonade stands.\u00a0 Lemonade Day Indianapolis is changing that and bringing lemonade stands back, along with a new way of thinking about them: they really are a kid\u2019s first entrepreneurial venture. And an important experiential learning opportunity. Now in its seventh year, Lemonade Day Indianapolis is inspiring the next generation of Hoosier entrepreneurs. Simply put, Lemonade Day is about providing kids of all ages the opportunity to EXPERIENCE entrepreneurship by planning, starting, owning, and operating their own business:\u00a0a lemonade stand! Online registration opens March 1st. When kids register, they get access to our fun, game-like digital curriculum called Lemonopolis. They earn points as they work through interactive lessons about starting a lemonade business and preparing for Lemonade Day, which is Saturday, May 21st. On that day, kids all over the Greater Indy area set up lemonade stands, sell lemonade and get a taste of entrepreneurship! They keep the money (it\u2019s their business after all!) and we encourage them to spend, save and share their profits. Over the last six years, these budding entrepreneurs collectively have donated an extraordinary amount of money to charities of their choosing, many of them local. Lemonade Day Indianapolis is just around the corner. You can expect to see hundreds, even thousands, of kids setting up shop and selling lemonade that day. There is nothing more local \u2013 more American even \u2013 than a kid at a lemonade stand, eager to earn their first dollar. Unlike the kids of prior generations though, who sort of \u201choped for the best\u201d with their lemonade sales, these lemonade stand owners will be armed with a business plan, maybe even a logo and a Square Reader. A new rite of passage.
