MEDFORD, Ore. – A national program that helps teach kids about entrepreneurship is coming to Jackson and Josephine counties.

It’s called Lemonade Day and it’s an experiential program that teaches kids of all ages how to start, own, and operate their own lemonade stand.

“They will create the lemonade stand themselves as well as a recipe for their lemonade and they will also learn to spend, save, and share some of what they make, said Rebecca Scott, a Lemonade Day council member.

Today local businesses, parents, students and teachers were all invited to come out and learn what Lemonade Day is all about.

The entire community can get involved. Local businesses can sign up to be a location for a lemonade stand, adults and business owners can volunteer to become mentors, any area can offer events space for Lemonade Day contests and individuals or groups can sponsor a lemonade stand.

“I just think its awesome that we’re getting a lot of support for our kids in entrepreneurship. It’s really important,” said Paula Yelle, a volunteer teacher.

“I think it’s very exciting,” said Courtney Tacchini, a parent, “I have two sons that are right in the age category and they’re very excited about the opportunity.”

There are even Lemonade Day contests where kids can receive recognition for the best lemonade stand or lemonade recipe.

“Younger children are so open to learning and everything is such a fun experience that they’ll really soak it up like sponges,” said Scott.

If you or your business is interested in getting involved you can contact the Medford Chamber of Commerce or register for Lemonade Day HERE.
