Enrichment Partner Spotlight: Lemonade Day

Uncategorized | By tlm_developer | No Comments on Enrichment Partner Spotlight: Lemonade Day

Today we’d like to introduce you to another of Rio Grande Educational Collaborative’s key enrichment partners, Lemonade Day. This is a national program that teaches kids how to start, fund, and run their own business in the form of a lemonade stand. After completing the program, all participants try their hand at entrepreneurship by setting up a lemonade stand on Lemonade Day in early May.  

Our E-CUBED learning model establishes Exploration, Enrichment, and Education as the building blocks that are essential to extended learning. We have chosen to incorporate the Lemonade Day program into our lessons because it meets each of these goals for our students. Lemonade Day introduces kids to the concept of running their own business while teaching math, planning, and how to take a business risk. All of this is carried out within the safe, educational, and supportive environment of an RGEC program with the guidance of our trained instructors.  

Kids go through the Lemonade Day curriculum (our facilitators are trained to instruct it during RGEC’s enrichment time of BAPS) and learn fourteen lessons about running a business that range from planning, budgeting, and securing investments to setting up and running their lemonade stand. As part of the program, kids will also learn what to do with profits, including repaying investors, saving, and donating a percentage of profit. 

Like Lemonade Day, all our enrichment partners help us to provide valuable learning to students in fun, engaging ways. To learn more about Rio Grande Educational Collaborative’s enrichment partners and the programs we offer, please contact us today!
