Alex's Lemonade Stand
This project is in it's third year (2017). Members in this project focus on teaching a business based curriculum to youth in the community. The curriculum is entrepreneurial and leadership education. The goal of this education is to set 5th graders, our current target market, up for success in the near and distant future as entrepreneurs. Once the students have completed the coursework, they host a lemonade stand at their school lunch or community at large. The profits of these lemonade stands are then donated back to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, which currently conducts research in to cures for childhood cancer. Other events have included conducting a 5k and coordinating with local businesses to raise funds for the organization.
