Lemonade Day Registration is Now Open for the Rochester Area

Rochester, Minnesota – Squeeze the Day! Think Bank is partnering with the Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce to bring the Lemonade Day experience to kids in the Rochester, Minnesota area for the third year in a row on Saturday, June 8th!
Rochester, Minnesota – Think Bank is serving as the Main Squeeze sponsor of the Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce's Lemonade Day experience on Saturday, June 8th in Rochester, Minnesota.

Lemonade Day is a well-established global national youth entrepreneurship program that teaches leadership and business skills by encouraging children to launch a lemonade business in their community. This free, fun, experiential learning program empower today’s youth to be tomorrow’s entrepreneurs.

The impact of a program like Lemonade Day is four-fold: 1) teach financial literacy to area youth; 2) promote entrepreneurship, which is key to jumpstarting economic growth in the state; 3) teach kids to be responsible and self-reliant, and to contribute to their community’s development; and 4) foster mentorship and bring families together.

Each child that registers receives access to the Lemonade Day curriculum, either via workbook or the new My Lemonade Day app along with a shirt, backpack, and swag. The resources will guide participants through the journey of planning, launching, and operating a business. The valuable lessons of Lemonade Day include setting a goal, making a plan, working the plan, and achieving their dreams. Once a youth pays their investor back, they keep all the money they earn and are encouraged to spend some, save some, and share some of their profit.

“Lemonade day is back for its third year in a row! We are excited to launch the use of the app for participants to learn the key Lemonade Day lessons from Lemmy and his Lemonade Day friends! I am excited to see what new and returning entrepreneurs have in store for this year,” said Ally Sheehan, Lemonade Day City Director and Senior Director, Events & Programs at the Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce.

We are thankful for the Sponsors for their dedication to youth entrepreneurship!
