There’s no doubt that parents are stressed out more than ever and looking for solutions amid a pandemic is no easy feat.
Girls With Impact, the nation’s only live, online entrepreneurship program for girls, understands this struggle and is now offering a COVID-relief financial break to keep girls advancing.
The 10-week Academy program — valued at $2,000 and designed with Harvard leaders – is being offered at just $199 – less than $20 per class.
“COVID-19 has been a turning point for home-based education – parents see that live, online learning from home can drive powerful results in their children,” said Jennifer Openshaw, CEO, Girls With Impact.
Through live, online classes, dedicated business coaches guide students in turning a passion into a business plan, teaching them critical skills for success–such as design thinking, marketing, finances, and more. Upon completion, girls join the Boardroom program, where they are paired with mentors and continue to learn and connect with their peers from across the country.
Girls With Impact’s after-school program is also eligible to be funded through the Federal Flexible Spending Account Program, under The Dependent Care FSA (DCFSA).
“A flexible spending account is a fantastic way for families to stretch their dollars and keep their daughters advancing,” added Openshaw.

Past graduates of Girls With Impact have seen full-ride college scholarships up to $200,000 as a result of their participation, launched their venture, attracted international press, and secured the college place of their dreams.
The program drives college prep and workforce readiness outcomes in areas that have long been barriers to women’s success. For example:
- 85% of graduates report improved leadership confidence
- 91% improve public speaking
- 93% feel more college ready
