Our vision is for every student to receive entrepreneurship education and encouragement to become a lifelong partner in building stronger communities. We work with K-12 educators throughout the region to provide tools, opportunities, and resources in and out of the classroom to activate innovative approaches to education. Marketplace for Kids is designed for grades 3-8. However, any student who wants to participate can. There is no cost to students, teachers, or parents.

Innovative Learning

Project based learning encourages students to stretch their thinking in more creative, divergent ways to solve problems and create new ideas.

During our unique Education Days, students attend hands-on activities to explore career fields, technology, and entrepreneurship.

Established Model

Marketplace for Kids is a nationally recognized model.

Outreach and technical assistance is provided to school districts, consortium of schools, youth organizations, and associations interested in Youth Entrepreneurship.

Creativity Unleashed

Students have the opportunity to create projects using collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking.

These projects are showcased by the students as part of our Education Days.

What’s an Education Day?
It is the culmination of the Marketplace for Kids experience! Education Days are unique, one-of-a-kind experience where students explore careers, technology, and the future through hands-on activities that are rooted in entrepreneurship and innovation. We hold nearly a dozen events throughout North Dakota each year!
