(WJBK) -

Lemonade Day Detroit  teaches local children how to start, own and operate a business through the simple and time-honored act of running a lemonade stand.

Joshua Smith, the 10-year-old Detroiter who ran a lemonade stand to raise money for his financially strapped city, is joining forces with Lemonade Day Detroit to share its message of entrepreneurship.

Children pre-K to grade 12 can register for Lemonade Day backpacks, full of easy tips and suggestions that are age-appropriate for each group.

Register online at detroit.lemonadeday.org, and pick up backpacks at locations listed on the website.

This year's Lemonade Day Detroit takes place on June 8.
