BERGEN COUNTY, N.J. -- Mentoring Moms, a program of the Volunteer Center of Bergen County, is seeking volunteer mentors to work with mothers who are overwhelmed by the responsibilities of children and life and who are also faced with immense personal challenges.

Registration is now open for Mentoring Moms Spring training, which begins April 11 from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the Volunteer Center of Bergen County.

The mentors are trained to listen, share ideas and offer support as mothers deal with the daily challenges of raising children.

“Mentors provide the needed support and resources that help strengthen a family”, says Cindy Andrake, program director of Mentoring Moms. “We know that parents with a social network of emotionally supportive people in their lives find it easier to care for their children and themselves. Most parents need someone they can call on when they need a sympathetic listener, some advice or ongoing support—our mentors fill that role.”

To learn more about becoming a Mentoring Mom, call 201-489-9454 ext. 211.

The Volunteer Center of Bergen County is located at 64 Passaic St.
