BASE has partnered with the Fort Atkinson Area Chamber of Commerce and FCCU to host Lemonade Day on May 4th. The program is designed to teach kids how to be an entrepreneur through a multi step process. We have over 60 kids registered for our first-ever Lemonade Day which is very exciting!
While most of the kids are being mentored by their parents, we are offering some group mentoring sessions for the BASE students at each of the elementary schools (Luther/Purdy to combine) and any others who wish to participate. Volunteers from the business community will be coming in to talk with the kids during future dates to talk about a variety of topics related to the Lemonade Day mission.
The first group mentoring session was held on Wednesday, March 20th 4pm-5pm. Speakers included bankers, entrepreneurs and charitable organizations. Kids learned what it means to be an entrepreneur, how to set realistic financial goals and who they might like to support with a financial gift. The next mentoring session will be held on Wednesday, April 3rd, 4pm-5pm.
