Lemonade Day Greater Vancouver
The Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce is proud to bring the national program,
Lemonade Day, to the Greater Vancouver area for the first time this year.
Coming soon is Lemonade Day Greater Vancouver, presented by iQ Credit Union. This free program invites youth of all ages to register to set up official Lemonade Day stands around SW Washington, offering the opportunity to start their very own business!
Kids must register with a mentoring adult, so there are lots of opportunities for mentors and volunteers, alike! In addition, community support from schools, youth organizations, and local businesses is essential to the success of Lemonade Day Greater Vancouver. 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, 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 Greater Vancouver. We need mentors, investors, employees, and customers to support these young entrepreneurs! Sponsors and volunteers are also needed to make Lemonade Day a success! All money raised through local donations and sponsorships directly supports Lemonade Day Greater Vancouver.
As COVID-19 presents challenges to schools and teachers across the state, Lemonade Day Greater Vancouver is coming straight to the young entrepreneurs in the form of Lemonopolis: an online curriculum of Lemonade Day! With Lemonopolis, kids will learn everything they need to know about becoming a successful business owner through lessons online. They can view their progress, revisit lessons, and even play games that assist them through the workbook.
The Chamber plans to register approximately 1,000 kids to participate in Lemonade Day Greater Vancouver 2020 through schools, youth organizations and volunteer/parental interest. Lemonade Day Greater Vancouver not only helps prepare our future entrepreneurs for sweet success in the future, but it also exposes our young entrepreneurs to our local Chamber of Commerce connections. Lemonade Day Greater Vancouver unites our business community, city leadership, educators, community members, parents, and children to work together toward a common goal: preparing our children for the future!
Squeeze The Day!
We are seeking the help of businesses to provide sites for our 2020 Lemonade Day Greater Vancouver young entrepreneur’s lemonade stands. As an official Lemonade Day Greater Vancouver stand site, we will distribute your business information to all Lemonade Day Greater Vancouver entrepreneurs, teachers, parents and business mentors. The young entrepreneurs are responsible for contacting their preferred site to secure the location for their lemonade stand on Saturday, June 6, 2020. We will publish all lemonade stand locations chosen by our young entrepreneurs in the Greater Vancouver newsletter to encourage the community to visit their lemonade stand. Business owners do not have to be present on June 6, 2020, to be an official site.
