Girl Scouts of Central Indiana joins thousands of Girl Scouts from across the country for Lemonade Day. Lemonade Day is an opportunity for girls of all ages to discover how to develop a business plan, establish a budget, seek investors, and operate a business. In the process, girls will connect entrepreneurship skills with community involvement and philanthropy. Girls are invited to participate in planning a booth and selling Lemonade to their local community. They may keep the money earned, but we encourage them to take action in their community and donate a portion of their proceeds to a local nonprofit.
What is Lemonade Day?
Lemonade Day is a financial literacy and entrepreneurship program that teaches children not only how to start their own business by operating a lemonade stand, but fundamental lessons about life and success for themselves. And it's fun!
How does it work?
On Lemonade Day, girls from across central Indiana set up their lemonade stand and become lemonade tycoons! Prior to this day, the girls and caring adults work through lesson plans about how to start a lemonade business. They can either participate individually with a parent, other adult, or as part of their troop. Backpacks and workbooks are provided for every girl participating.
