Babson welcomes all alumni, family, and friends of the College to participate in Lemonade Day Boston! If this is your first time participating, read our Boston Story to learn about how we brought Lemonade Day to Beantown.
Any child in the Greater Boston area can receive the Lemonade Day curriculum and work with a caring adult to go through the lessons. The experience culminates with the launching of each child’s very own lemonade business.
With help from parents, teachers, mentors, and Babson volunteers, children use the Lemonade Day curriculum to learn the steps needed to start a business – everything from setting a goal to creating a business plan, forming a budget, finding an investor, saving money, and donating back to community. While having fun, children are learning math and reading skills such as quantitative reasoning and vocabulary development in addition to improving life skills like critical thinking, self-direction and problem solving.
Here is how to get started!
- Register for Lemonade Day
When registering for Lemonade Day, each participating child must be entered separately to make sure everyone gets their own backpack.
- Get Your Lemonade Day Backpacks(s)
Once your registration is submitted, a member of our staff at the Alumni & Friends Network will be in contact to arrange for Lemonade Day backpacks to be sent to your home. Backpacks can also be picked up at Babson’s Alumni Office at any time. Backpacks include:
- A Welcome Letter from our City Champions
- Your very own copy of Danny Dollar Millionaire Extraordinaire: The Lemonade Escapade by Ty Allan Jackson
- Lemonade Day Entrepreneur Workbook
- Lemonade Day Mentor Guide
- Lemonade Day Stickers for your stands
- Complete the Lemonade Day Lessons
Mentors and children can work through the Lemonade Day curriculum together to create a complete business plan! If you need any help, check out our great training videos for tips and tricks to get the most of out your Entrepreneur and Mentor Workbooks.
- Run A Lemonade Stand!
Lemonade Day Boston will officially take place on May 4th, 2013 with stands running across the city of Boston. If that day looks a little busy for you, feel free to run your stand anytime in the first two weeks of May. If possible, remember to let us know where your stand will be and send any pictures to Anjali at firstname.lastname@example.org to be featured on future Lemonade Day marketing materials!
