A pilot Citrus Saturday was held in Dublin on 26 June 2012. It was organised by National College of Ireland ,as part of their Discover University college taster project, in association with Dublin City Council.
17 young people from Dublin's Inner City Docklands area, aged 14-17, set up three lemonade stands across the Docklands area. In two hours they were able to sell €400 of lemonade. The young people were assisted by six mentors and a team leader from the student body at National College of Ireland.
This is some of the feedback from participants:
- 'I learned to be an entrepreneur and how to create a business. I will be an entrepreneur 10 years after'.
- 'I learned more things about myself and how to be confident and how to realise my dream.'
- 'I'm more confident that I think I am. I work well in groups.'
This was part of the Citrus Saturday programme, piloted in London in 2011 and also run in Edinburgh in 2012.
