The Cincinnati Business Courier’s technology newsletter recognized Inspiring Service’s new technology platform aimed at giving 1:1 homework help to disadvantaged students as a pandemic innovator in its annual “Cincy Inno on Fire” competition.
“When the coronavirus pandemic hit, schools across the country closed and transitioned to remote learning,” the publication wrote. “Seeing the need to keep students from falling behind, StudyHall has had 230 students register across 42 schools in Greater Cincinnati since registration began in early September. StudyHall has raised more than $300,000 in funding in direct support of its mission to provide free online 1:1 homework help to the students who need it most since its inception in March.”
StudyHall, launched by Inspiring Service co-founder Michael Young, was recognized among four pandemic innovators out of 31 organizations in its annual recognition of technology firms doing great work. Inspiring Service was recognized by Cincy Inno last fall.
