Established by a retired teacher and Quaker who saw the challenges faced by young, poor, isolated mothers in Northwest Pasadena, Mother’s Club is a lifeline for many local women. It combines a quality preschool for children with education and support for the mostly Latina moms, with classes in English, parenting skills, career planning, support for teen parents and more. The volunteer needs are many, from computer tutors for the moms to teacher’s assistants in the preschool. It’s a particularly good place for teenagers to volunteer.
