Lucky San Diego students will have a brand new facility specifically designed to help them do their homework and get help if they need it. Union Bank announced the historic opening of the Union Bank Homework Center at the new Central Library in San Diego.
The Union Bank Homework Center will open to the public on September 30, 2013, and is located near the Teen Center on the second floor. The center will serve students of the Charter high school located in the building, and will extend its services to ”students attending the 37 elementary, middle, and high schools located within two and half miles of the new Central Library.”
The state of the art Union Bank Homework Center features a combination of desktops and tablets, and will be staffed seven days a week (Monday — Friday 2:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., Sunday 1 p.m. — 3 p.m.) by trained high school and adult volunteers or “homework coaches.”
“The Union Bank Homework Center helps further the bank’s commitment to responsible banking and our mission of supporting education and financial literacy in our communities,” said Union Bank Senior Vice President and Regional Executive Lawrence Henry.
Support from businesses like Union Bank are vital to ensure students get the most out of their education. Union Bank pledged $300,00 towards this effort.
CEO Jay Hill said, “Union Bank was one of our first corporate donors, and we are thankful for their support to help make this vision a reality.”
The new San Diego Library is located in downtown San Diego’s East Village at 330 Park Boulevard. There will be a “Sneak Peak” and dedication ceremony of the new library followed by a celebration including a street festival on September 28th 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The public is invited.
