Heart Math Tutoring Receives Apparo’s Mission Possible Economic Opportunity Grant

May 3, 2017

Heart was awarded a $60,000 cash and pro bono contribution from Accenture at Apparo’s ConnectivIT Ball, presented by Microsoft! The award is Apparo’s first Mission Possible Economic Opportunity Award. A panel of CIO judges chose a technology project that will impact economic opportunity in Charlotte. Heart will use the award to digitize its student and tutor information, ultimately improving student outcomes and program scalability. Heart impacts a variety of factors of economic mobility. Mentorship by Heart tutors improves social capital and reduces economic segregation in high-poverty schools. Improved math skills translate to higher graduation rates and income opportunity.
