Ready to Become a Compeer Volunteer?

Step 1 is to JOIN!

Complete the on-line application below. Once you apply, a Compeer Program Director will contact you to schedule an interview and discuss volunteer opportunities. Our volunteers come from all walks of life, all races, all religions, across western New York.

Step 2 is the MATCH!

Once you complete our screening process, volunteer training and are approved, you can be matched. Compeer kids, adults, veterans and older adults are as diverse as our volunteers. They are referred to Compeer by mental health professionals.

Step 3 is to MEET!

Meet with your Compeer friend! Compeer staff, along with the referring mental health professional, will support volunteers and mentors with ongoing professional guidance to help encourage the development of a great friendship throughout the lifetime of your match!

Step 4 is to ENJOY!

Have a blast spending time with your Compeer friend. Attend special Compeer events and share in activities that you both equally enjoy such as movies, sports, or eating out…the possibilities are endless! Have Fun!
