About this project
Tomorrow's Lemonade Stand is a secure online community of mini-preneurs ages 6-10 where they earn rewards for being creative, passionate, and taking risks. With a focus on entrepreneurship, kids learn key skills such as financial literacy, planning, organization and teamwork through games and activities. Kids get to have fun while learning skills that can help them through out their lives. TLS’s online community features a customized virtual office for each lemonade maker and allows them to connect and share ideas with their creative peers. Our mini-preneurs, starring Kid Kartwheeler and Monkey Bar Man, are waiting on the playground to be built and we need some help to build a better Tomorrow!
Tomorrow's Lemonade Stand (TLS) was created by an 8 year old girl who is already CEO of her first company, lLIFTE (Little Ladies Inventing Fun Through Entrepreneurship). After a pilot year with 9 of her teammates, she wanted to dream bigger. She also wanted to include the boys, because she thought everyone should learn about how to become an entrepreneur. TLS is aimed at children ages 6-10 who want to learn the basics of entrepreneurship and empathy. This new gaming site is the first step in making that idea a reality.
Though there are already a number of ways to help the next generation learn about entrepreneurship -- this one will be customized, fun, and focused on one of the most creative and critical periods of a child's life. TLS will emphasize the following as we sip our lemonade:
Position Tomorrow's Lemonade Stand as a global hub of innovation and entrepreneurship for SUPER young entrepreneurs.
Provide access to high quality online learning materials and courses which focus on the needs of the little ladies and mini men.
Elevate the interest in entrepreneurial learning for access to high quality, reviewed and unique content created specifically for children ages 6-10.
Encourage young entrepreneurs and their supporters to join the movement and start their own futures
Accelerate the integration of virtual education in every aspect of a young life
Attract, engage, and retain a global network of SUPER young entrepreneurs to collaborate and express their long-term commitment to being creative, taking a risk, and finding their passion.
We cannot get this off the ground without you!!! Everyone knows the feeling-- pulling over to grab a cup of cold lemonade on a hot summer day in your neighborhood; on your street corner; or even at the store. Help us prepare these kids for their Tomorrow's Lemonade Stand.
All we need is you.
THANKS IN ADVANCE!
