Lemonade Stand

DATE: July 2021

DESCRIPTION: Typically, in the summer, Bridges to Independence hosts an annual youth Lemonade Stand, making an appearance at various sites across Arlington in July. The youth learn good decision-making, a strong work ethic, and salesmanship through promotion, prep/cleanup, and management of their own lemonade stand. Last year, Lemonade Stand was not able to make it usual appearance due to COVID-19. Bridges pivoted from the in-person Lemonade Stand, and instead, offered a three-prong approach. Bridges youth created original art and learned the value of good decision making and financial empowerment through online seminars. Their artwork was auctioned off to the community in August.

This year, Lemonade Stand is dependent on how the coronavirus and Federal, Virginia and Arlington guidance and restrictions evolve through the spring. More information will be made available soon.
