Lemonade Alley teaches K-12 Students Fun Entrepreneurship

Lemonade Alley

Huge Nationwide Lemonade Stand Competition for Kids K-12!

A friend of mine in Hawaii, Steve Sue, started a non-profit project called Lemonade Alley, which promotes business and financial literacy as kids K-12 write simple business plans, create unique recipes, build lemonade stands and pitch their ideas to sell lemonade for charity. After its success last summer in HonoluluING DIRECT is taking Lemonade Alley to 7 cities across the U.S. mainland: San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Wilmington, Chicago, and St. Cloud. The winning teams from each competition win an all-expense paid trip August 14-19 to Hawaii for Camp BizGym – a fun “kid-preneurs” business camp with an island twist.

By supporting Lemonade Alley, we not only help kids get biz-wise, but also encourage young people to give back to their communities. We are asking for volunteers, sponsors, and tax-deductible donations for the San Francisco Bay Area Lemonade Alley contest or start one in their own city. The latest good news is that Beverly Macy, author of The Power of Real Time Social Media Marketing and instructor at UCLA Business and Management Extension has agreed to be an adviser for the project.
