Kids to attend day event to learn to be an entrepreneur
On the Web
BOSTON -- Summer jobs for kids are a perpetual challenge, so youngsters across the country are bucking long odds in the dismal job market and earning their own mall money or cash for college.
They're becoming entrepreneurs. They are advertising their services as dog walkers, car washers and lawn mowers.
Thousands of kids in 31 cities are expected to attend one-day entrepreneur-training events in May, called lemonade day.
The program teaches children and teens how to make and sell lemonade, but borrow and repay investors who help start their stands, and what to do with profit, including donating some to charity.
Boston is holding this event on May 1. For more details visit Lemonade Day’s website.
