Our Entrepreneur class is based on the Lemonade Brigade, a program taught by Beverly Brown. Beverly is preparing 8 students from Anna’s Place NOLA to become business people by teaching them the various aspects of business management. They are learning marketing, finances, product development and customer service. Each student is currently designing their own business concept as a class project. In addition, they are developing products to sell at the Anna’s Place NOLA Holiday Market. The market will take place at St. Anna’s Episcopal Church, 1313 Esplanade Avenue, on three consecutive Saturdays; December 5th, 12th and 19th ( Time TBA). A percentage of sells will go to the youth with the remaining proceeds going to support the Anna’s Place NOLA youth program. For more information contact Darryl at (504) 947-2121.
The Lemonade Brigade is part of Kids Wanna Help©, a 501(c)(3) kid powered non-profit organization that gives kids an opportunity to raise money for charities through fun activities that build confidence and self-esteem and encourage a lifetime of social and community responsibility.
