Girls gain valuable lessons in selling their own products
7/28/2022, 6 p.m.
The Camp Diva Leadership Academy will host its annual Market Day featuring Camp Diva Leadership Academy participants who make and sell their own products.
This year’s Market Day takes place from 1 to 5 p.m. on Friday, July 29, at the Girls For A Change center, 100 Buford Road. For four hours, the community is invited to visit the market to shop, interact with the girls, and enjoy live entertainment.
“Market Day is an important part of Camp Diva because it helps the girls develop public speaking skills as they interact with shoppers, and teaches them pricing and marketing skills, says Angela Patton, founder of Camp Diva Leadership Academy and CEO of Girls For A Change. “They also gain networking skills as they interact with the community and learn about entrepreneurship.”
This year’s Market Day also will include participants of a newly launched Girls For A Change Budding Black Girl Incubator program. The incubator offers an immersive experience for girls who are interested in starting and growing a retail-based business, according to a news release.
In addition to shopping and supporting Camp Diva and Immersion Lab participants, attendees may shop the Diva Bag Pop-Up Shop. GFAC recently hosted a Diva Bag Auction to raise money for its One Million Reasons to Build Campaign.
As part of the Diva Bag Auction, GFAC has a number of gently-used designer bags from which to shop. For more details, please visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/camp-diva-market-day- 2022-tickets-366053514917
