LEMONADE DAY PUERTO RICO
Lemonade Day Puerto Rico is an experiential entrepreneurship learning program that teaches kids and their mentors how to start, own and operate their own business. Established over 10 years ago in Texas, Lemonade Day has benefited over one million kids in the United States. CRECE is the license holder of Lemonade Day in Puerto Rico since 2019. In our first 3 years of operation, we have delivered entrepreneurship education free of charge to over 2,500 children and teenagers, and 1,230 mentors. We provide educational materials, entrepreneurship and mentorship workshops, and guide mentors, parents, and students throughout the process, which culminates with a special day for kids to operate their business – a lemonade stand. Through this engaging initiative, we also encourage students to spend, save, and share a portion of the revenues for the betterment of their communities.
“Thanks to Lemonade Day, we learned about the opportunities that we have in life to become successful entrepreneurs and leaders in our communities.”—Business owner, Lemonade Day by 5th Grader, Guayama, Puerto Rico
