Children from all over Metro Detroit will have lemonade stands for Lemonade Day Detroit June 12, a free, community-wide program dedicated to teaching children how to start, own and operate their own business through the simple and time-honored act of building and running a lemonade stand.

Through the program, the youth of Oakland, Macomb and Wayne counties will learn real life skills that teach them experiential learning by starting, owning and operating their own business, which gives them the opportunity to “spend a little, save a little and share a little,” donating a portion of their profits to a local charity of choice. After covering their expenses and paying back their investors, children are encouraged to open a youth savings account.

Below is a list of local stands . All times are for Sunday, June 12.
