PRESS RELEASE: Youth Entrepreneurship Program, Lemonade Day, Returns to Michigan!

Washtenaw County, MI (Jan. 1, 2019) – Lemonade Day is a free, fun, experiential learning program that teaches kids how to start, own and operate their very own business – a lemonade stand. Lemonade Day has spread to over 57 cities in 23 states and 3 countries. We are proud to announce that this year kids in Washtenaw County will get to join in on the fun.

Our 2019 County Director is Fonda Aguwa and our County Champion is Godfrey Aguwa, Jr., Executive Director for DCU Next Generation. Featured sponsors and partners include: Dollars & Cents University, University of Michigan Credit Union, Freedom Beyond Wealth, Lake Trust Credit Union, and more.

Each child that registers receives a FREE backpack with an Entrepreneur Workbook or access to an online interactive program that teaches them the valuable lessons of Lemonade Day – including how to set a goal, make a plan, work the plan and achieve their dreams. Once a youth pays their investor back, they keep all of the money they earn and are encouraged to spend some, save some, and share some of their profit.

Anyone and everyone can be involved in Lemonade Day! Young entrepreneurs with lemonade stands need mentors, investors, business partners, great locations, and customers! Sponsors and volunteers are also needed to make Lemonade Day a success.
