May 7th: Lemonade Day Galveston


 

Become a Young Entrepreneur:

National Lemonade Day and Lemonade Day Galveston County

Youth of all ages, from pre-K through high school, can register to set up an official Lemonade Day stand Sunday, May 7th. Kids must register with a mentoring adult so there are lots of opportunities for mentors and volunteers. In addition, community support from schools, youth organizations, and local businesses is essential to the success of Lemonade Day Galveston County.

Once a child is registered they receive a backpack with an informational workbook that outlines the steps needed to start a business: from setting a goal, creating a business plan, forming a budget, finding an investor, to saving money, and donating a portion back to their community. Materials are available in Spanish and English.

Everyone is welcome to be involved with Lemonade Day Galveston County. “We need mentors, investors, employees, and customers to support participants. Sponsors and volunteers are also needed to make Lemonade Day a success. All money raised through local donations and sponsorships directly support Lemonade Day Galveston County,” said Gina Spagnola.
