U.S. Bank has awarded $5,000 to the San Diego Center for Children’s Music Enrichment Program. The Center will be able to offer each student enrolled for the 2018-2019 school year the opportunity to participate in this empowering music program. As part of its holistic therapeutic approach, the Center teaches kids all about music, allows them to experience the joy of creative expression, and build confidence. Students also learn communication and life skills such as listening and taking turns. The students who attend the Center’s Academy are between the ages of 6 and 21, and have been referred to by their local school districts because their mental health challenges are getting in the way of academic success.
