For the third year in a row, the Junior League of Greenwich is excited to be partnering with Girls with Impact to present “Impact your World”, a free, online workshop targeted to young women in the Greenwich community, aged 11- 14 years old.
Taking place virtually on Saturday, January 29th from 12pm-1:30pm, participants will learn about entrepreneurship and business skill development. They will then be guided through the process of creating an impactful project with purpose in their communities. Girls will have the opportunity to meet and collaborate with fellow girls in the community and share their passions, thoughts, and visions.
The program is presented in partnership with Girls with Impact, an organization whose mission is to equip girls with the business and leadership skills required of today’s workforce, thereby increasing their college and career successes, financial literacy, and economic impact. This partnership provides an opportunity for the Junior League of Greenwich to work with a dedicated subject matter expert to continue providing valuable programming for the personal development of Tween and Teen girls in the Greenwich community.
“We are excited to continue to partner with Girls with Impact to help develop the next generation of women leaders”, said Karen Richard, JLG President. “The middle school years are an impressionable time for girls. The Impact Your World workshop uses hands-on projects and coaching to build entrepreneurial skills and enhance self-confidence – so these young women envision what they can be – and gain skills to help them get there.”
Registration is now available for girls aged 11 to 14 years old at the Junior League of Greenwich website: www.jlgreenwich.org/impact-your-world/.
