They say “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” But what do you do after you make the lemonade? The Greater Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce is joining in Lemonade Day, an experience-oriented learning program that teaches kids about business. The program sets out to teach students “how to set a goal, develop a product, create a business plan, develop a marketing strategy, work the plan and achieve their dreams” through a day of running their very own small lemonade business. Nearly 50 businesses and organizations are supporting the program through sponsorships and volunteers, and by providing locations for the pop-up stands. Online registration for youth participants, mentors and volunteers is encouraged leading up to the event.
