The New Song Center for Grieving Children is offering training to become a volunteer grief support group facilitator.

The nonprofit center provides grief support for children and families who have experienced the death of a loved one. The program helps children, teens and young adults cope with their grief and loss through the sharing of stories and experiences, as well as art, music and recreation. Trained volunteers lead support groups under the direction of professional staff.

The next five-class series begins 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 13 at Hospice of the Valley’s central Phoenix office, 1510 E. Flower St. The series continues with evening classes 5:30-9 p.m. Sept. 15, Sept. 17 and Sept. 18, concluding with another all-day session on Sept. 20.

The 25-hour training program is offered at no cost to individuals who wish to become New Song Center volunteers. A one-year commitment is requested for volunteers.
