Lemonade Day 2014

Lemonade Day Northeast Ohio is quickly becoming a tradition in our region for students in grades K-12.  A total of 1,637 youth participated in this experiential entrepreneurship program through a record 39 community partners.  Fourteen new community partners were added, including the Cleveland Boys and Girls Club and the Cleveland Metropolitan School District.

Lemonade Day is a national program, which was begun in Houston in 2007.  In 2011, it was brought to Northeast Ohio by the Burton D. Morgan Foundation as a program coordinated by University School’s Entrepreneur Institute.  Lemonade Day is not actually just one day, but spans the spring and summer months.  Its mission is to help prepare youth for life through a fun, experiential program infused with life skills, character education, and entrepreneurship.  Students set up lemonade stands across Northeast Ohio and learn valuable lessons on budgeting, goal-setting, customer service, repaying investors, teamwork, and philanthropy.  The program’s community partners include public, private, and charter schools, and area youth and community organizations.

Lemonade Day Northeast Ohio is supported by the Veale Foundation and KeyBank, as well as The Burton D. Morgan Foundation.  If you are interested in learning more about Lemonade Day or becoming a community partner or sponsor, please contact Jessie Jones, Regional Director, at 216-831-2200, ext. 7456, or
