All kids need heroes and our kids need superheroes. Compeer mentors bring sunshine and hope into the lives of children and youth, aged 6 to 17, who are in need of a positive adult role model, a trusted friend. They need someone who believes in them and who will be there to share the good and the bad times with them.
By sharing a couple hours a week with a young person, you can change his/her life, as well as yours. Simple acts of kindness like going for ice cream, having a cookout or picnic in the park, helping them to study or learn to read, or going to the library can open up the world to a young person and reveal all the potential inside.
Compeer has nearly 200 young people on our waiting list who want a mentor. Getting involved is easy, satisfying, and rewarding – for you and your young friend. All it takes is kindness, understanding, and fun to change a life.
Volunteer at least four hours a month with the child/youth. you are matched with. Our mentors make a big impact by simply spending quality time with their mentee.
