Young entrepreneurs learn to make profits out of lemons

The city of McAllen is encouraging young boys and girls to take life's lemons and make lemonade, for profit!

It's part of a program that will help young students refine their entrepreneurship skills.

Lemonade Day McAllen is looking for youth entrepreneurs that want to start, own and operate their own business - a lemonade stand.

The objective of lemonade day is to teach youth how to start and run their own lemonade business.

Through this enterprise, children will learn the entrepreneurial skills necessary to be successful in the future and become contributing members of their communities.

The best part of the program for kids is that after covering their expenses and paying back their investors, they can keep what they earn.

With this in mind, children are encouraged to open a youth savings account so their profits can continue to grow as well as give a portion of their earnings to a charity.
