Sour Power – Financial Literacy With Lemonade Stands
Did you sell lemonade as a child? Ever buy a cold sweet cup on a hot summer day? Childhood lemonade stands represent freedom, independence, confidence, and financial responsibility to young minds. Your teams will create the ultimate lemonade stand. Your final stand will be donated to local children along with a “How-to” guide to help teach them about business and financial literacy. But before you donate them… you have to test them. Each team must come up with their own flavor of lemonade that they think will sell the most glasses. All recipes will be included in the Lemonade Starter Kits the kids receive with their stands. Can your team build a better stand?
Teams take all of their business acumen and apply it on a micro scale to benefit an at risk population. This is the perfect way to combine team building with financial literacy. Achieving success will require teams to focus on task prioritization, innovation, and strategy.
