Mini Kids Entrepreneur Fair
Mini Kids Entrepreneur Fair of Rhode Island is designed to develop our youths overall skills by introducing them to entrepreneurship through play. When kids (and adults!) learn from experience, new connections are formed in their brains - this is what creates the biological framework for creative thinking and solutions.
If you and your child decide to participate in the Mini Kids Entrepreneur Fair, you can expect the experience will leave a lasting positive impact on your child’s growth and development. With support from parents and caretakers, children will be given the tools and platform to practice complex thinking, decision making, and problem solving. Through exploration, curious questions, and creating from the ideas they develop, children will improve their self-confidence, thinking skills, and commitment to follow-through. Not every child will grow up to become an entrepreneur after this experience, but they will gain critical transferable life skills that they will use for years to come.
Participants are invited to come curious, open-minded, and prepared to embark upon a fun, educational journey filled with positive transformation. Teams of parents and children will come together for the ultimate bonding experience - turning dreams into reality - and leaving with shared memories to last a lifetime.
After participating in the Mini Kids Entrepreneur Fair, your child will have had hands-on experience in, and exposure to:
Basic Financial Literacy (writing a receipt, counting, managing and saving money)
Learning through Play
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Expressive Arts & Design

MEET THE FOUNDER
Erica Campbell is the Founder of the Mini Kids Entrepreneur Fair. She is a First Generation Cape Verdean American, wife, mother of 2 and stepmother of 2. Erica has been involved in the field of education for the last thirteen years. Throughout her studies at the University of Rhode Island, Erica was frequently told she belonged in the field of Education. But by the time she graduated, she was still uncertain of exactly what she wanted to do professionally. Finding herself drawn to the world of non-profit organizations, she decided to enroll in the Americorps, and was stationed at the Metropolitan Regional Career and Technical Center (The MET High School). She credits this experience for falling in love with the world of education. Thirteen years later, she now serves full-time at the MET as an Academic Advisor. But her story in education started long before this. Erica and her family live in Rhode Island. She founded the Mini Kids Entrepreneur Fair as a way to deepen her connection with her sons and to teach them the transferable life skills that come from starting a project and seeing it through. Honoring her parents’ legacy, Erica now extends her skillset outward to share this impactful framework with her community. Erica’s ability to create safe, positive and playful learning environments lays the groundwork for an unforgettable, transformational experience for children and families to share together. Erica holds a B.A. in Communications from the University of Rhode Island and a M.A.T. in Elementary and Secondary Special Education from Johnson & Wales University.
