Australian Youth and the Entrepreneurship Culture
Ever been amazed by the ideas pitched by a young person? The potential for our youth to be the business leaders of the future is high and they just need a “seat at the table”.
Lemonade Day is a fun program that teaches youth how to start, own and operate their very own business – a lemonade stand. Each year on the first Sunday of May, in participating cities in America, South Africa and Canada, youth have the opportunity to experience entrepreneurship by setting up their business during their city’s community-wide Lemonade Day.
Today we talked to Aaron Ngan, the CEO of JA (Junior Achievement) Australia, about the importance of giving our youth the skill and knowledge about entrepreneurship, and whether we should implement a similar program in Australia.
