In 2018 the JLL Partnership with a local chapter of a national program that teaches youth (typically K-5) about entrepreneurism through the creation and implementation of a Lemonade stand. JLL is involved with bringing the program to non-profits and youth that would not ordinarily have the opportunity and assist with the overall success of the program.
Lemonade Day is a free, fun, experiential learning program that teaches youth how to start, own and operate their own business – a lemonade stand.
The foremost objective of Lemonade Day is to empower youth to take ownership of their lives and become productive members of society – the business leaders, social advocates, volunteers, and forward thinking citizens of tomorrow.
Each child that registers receives a backpack with an Entrepreneur Workbook that teaches them the Lemonade Day lessons like creating budgets, setting profit-making goals, serving customers, repaying investors, and giving back to the community. Along the way, they acquire skills in goal-setting, problem solving, and gain self-esteem critical for future success. They keep all the money they make and are encouraged to spend some, save some and share some.
