Lemonade Day logoLemonade Day is a free, fun, experiential learning program that teaches youth how to start, own and operate their own business – a lemonade stand. It began in Houston, Texas in 2007. Since then, it has grown from 2,700 kids to 120,000 kids in 31 cities across America and Canada in 2011 – including ours!

The foremost objective of Lemonade Day is to empower youth to take ownership of their lives and become productive members of society – the business leaders, social advocates, volunteers, and forward thinking citizens of tomorrow.

Lemonade Day Galveston County is presented and organized by the Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce. Galveston County youth of all ages, from pre-K through high school, can register to set up an official Lemonade Day stand. Don’t forget to “like” Lemonade Day Galveston County on Facebook here!

This year, the Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce has partnered with MyBayArea Radio and MyBayArea.Community to help spread the word throughout all of Galveston County and beyond! We have scheduled additional kick-off events in League City and Texas City, and we hope to bring on additional locations very soon!
