Youth Entrepreneurship Programs

At Community Futures Tawatinaw Region we believe that youth entrepreneurship! 

It is our goal to give the youth of our Region the skills, knowledge and support to understand entrepreneurship and even consider it as a future career option. 
We are proud to offer a wide range of youth entrepreneurship training for students’ kindergarten and up!  Each program is unique and offers a chance for the kids to learn     hands-on, all while having Fun!


Lemonade Day is a free, fun, experiential learning program that teaches youth how to start, own and operate their own business – a lemonade stand.

Each child that registers receives a backpack with an Entrepreneur Workbook that teaches them the lessons of Lemonade Day like creating budgets, setting profit-making goals, serving customers, repaying investors, and giving back to the community. Along the way, they acquire skills in goal-setting, problem solving, and gain self-esteem critical for future success.

Then on June 22, 2019 Lemonade Day Kids all across our region set up lemonade Stands and try their hands at business ownership!  

This is a great opportunity for kids in the area to try their hand at starting and managing their own business, but Lemonade Day is a big project so we need your help!  We are looking for participants, volunteers sponsors and more.  If you are interested in being a part of Lemonade Day 2019 please contact us today.
