Ready to Become a Compeer Volunteer?

Step 1 is to JOIN!

Complete the on-line application below. Once you apply, a Compeer Program Coordinator 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 background check fingerprinting, and new volunteer training 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. Say Yes Scholars– graduating seniors from Buffalo public schools– are each requesting a mentor to guide them through their first year of college.

Step 3 is to MEET!

Meet with your Compeer friend! Compeer staff, along with the referring mental health professional, or Say Yes Scholar Mentoring Supervisor supports volunteers and mentors with ongoing professional guidance to help encourage the development of a great friendship!

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!
