A nonprofit organization hopes to equip 100 teen girls from low- to moderate-income families with the skills needed to launch a business, nonprofit or community project.

Girls with Impact, a group that aims to supply next-generation leaders with a strong network for both the corporate and public sectors, announced recently that it will give 100 girls scholarships to an online academy where they can learn how to build a business or nonprofit.

The deadline to apply is Monday. Applications can be submitted online at girlswithimpact.com. Scholarships are made possible by support of Eversource Energy and Boston Scientific, according to a press release.

The live, online program is designed with Harvard University experts. It guides girls through ideation to a plausible business plan. Along the way, the girls learn about concepts such as competition, targeting customers, finances and marketing.

Aashna Mahukar, a 15-year-old Shrewsbury High School student, underwent the after-school program, where she designed an app, Recycling Rewards, to offer a new, more efficient way to encourage recycling.

“The program was incredible,” said Aashna in a statement. “It gave me a way to make my idea become reality. When I go to college, it’s really, really going to help set me apart.”

Another student, Laura Schroeder, created Cloud Cosmetics, an animal-friendly company.

“After completing the Girls with Impact program, I feel much more confident because I know I have a leg up on my classmates,” she said.

This year, Girls With Impact expects to train 1,000 girls although “there are no limits to the number we can train,” said CEO Jennifer Openshaw. “It’s all part of Girls With Impact’s effort to equip 10,000 girls with the skills and confidence to become the leaders of tomorrow."
