(WVUE) -

It won't be long before you see little budding business owners hit the streets to show off their entrepreneurial skills.

Lemonade Day in Louisiana is on Saturday, April 30 and registration is now open.  

The free learning program teaches kids how to start, own and operate their own businesses - through lemonade stands.

Last year, 15,000 kids participated in the program and the goal for this year is to reach 20,000

Each child that registers receives a backpack with an Entrepreneur Workbook that teaches them the 14 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. They keep all the money they make and are encouraged to spend some, save some and share some.
