K-12 Social Venture Challenge
Students sell lemonade to support a charity of their choice
RUN a LEMONADE ALLEY!
Lemonade Alley is a hands-on entrepreneurship challenge that can be run at school, at youth centers or at home. Scalable design-thinking curriculum allows for a range of experiences from a single class to a multiple day experience.
NOT just KID STUFF
This is a major hack. At lemonade Alley, students become mixologists, create retail stores, serve at an “Iron Chef” style taste test and perform a 1-minute sales pitch on stage ~ all to raise money for a charity of their choice.
Benefits include leadership training, 4Cs skills (Creativity, Critical-thinking, Collaboration & Communication), Soft Skills development, design-thinking training, financial literacy, entrepreneurial mindset, philanthropic charitable giving training and Social Emotional Learning. You might say it’s the Kitchen Sink of education!
Students gain skills, build their resumes and support our local community as they find their hero within.
The art of “Profit to Share!”
Express your creativity, learn entrepreneurship, affect the world in positive ways AND have fun!
A Word From
The Chief Lemon Head
Calling all Lemon-preneurs! We need you to step up and help your community. We’re looking for young heroes. Heroes who want to make cool stuff. Heroes want to support charities. If that’s you, then get your lemons on and sign up for Lemonade Alley.
On behalf of the Bizgenics, I salute you for joining our entrepreneurial challenge of Profit to SHARE!
Love, Lemons & Aloha,
HOW IT WORKS
“Lemonade Alley is the venue in which the application of learning (math, reading, writing skills), the application of soft skills (communication, perseverance, reflection, collaboration), and empathy building & compassion takes place. The greatest part is that learning is fun and all for a good cause! Our returning students have always asked us the following year if they can participate again in this awesome event, and our answer is always yes!”
