Volunteer Entrepreneur Opportunity

Bootstrappers, Citizen Schools and the Holthouse Foundation are hosting Lemonade Day Apprenticeship this spring. Lemonade Day is a great project designed to teach kids to become entrepreneurs by running their own lemonade stand. And it has the potential to make a huge community impact: In Houston in 2009, over 27,000 youth registered for Lemonade Day, sold over 2 million cups of lemonade and donated close to $500,000 to their favorite charities!

The host organizations are still looking for experienced entrepreneurs to work with the students on the Lemonade Day project. This would entail making a 10-week commitment to working with a group of 15 students to pass on your entrepreneurial experiences and insights and guiding them to be confident and ready to sell some lemonade the first Sunday in May. If you are interested in signing up to volunteer for this worthwhile program, please contact Leanne at
