“As we were evaluating our projects this year we were looking for a new opportunity to serve middle and high school girls in the Greenwich community. Girls with Impact is uniquely positioned to provide online programming to help foster leadership and entrepreneurial skills for these girls, and thanks to their established online Academy, we were able to easily pivot from an in-person workshop to an online format in the wake of COVID-19”  said Hilary Watson, President of the JLG

This initiative provides an opportunity for the Junior League of Greenwich to partner with a dedicated subject matter expert to continue providing valuable programming for the personal development of Tween and Teen girls in the Greenwich community.      

Girls with Impact (www.girlswithimpact.org) provides online programming to develop leadership and entrepreneurial skills for young women. They will be offering  a 5 week virtual summer camp and a 10 week on line Academy “ mini MBA” program  that are designed to help young women become leaders, design their dream project,  and aspire for their future successes.  They note: 

  • 89% of Generation Z women want to do something they care about. 
  • At the same time, 30% of girls experience a drop in confidence between the ages of 8 – 14. 

Girls with Impact is also the winner of the 2020 Junior League of Greenwich Community Service Award.
