Compeer programs match friendly, sociable volunteers with adults who are in sustained recovery for mental health. The volunteer and their match typically take walks, grab a bite to eat, watch a movie, attend an art exhibit, visit the library, go shopping, or catch a sporting event together. Volunteers provide an extra level of positive friendship, support, and social interaction to help their Compeer friends—and the volunteers themselves—feel more fulfilled and engaged.

Volunteers receive comprehensive training and support before spending at least four hours per month and one year in duration with their Compeer friends. This gift of friendship helps build a bond of belonging and enhanced wellness. Mental Wellness starts with Friendship!
Note: Due to COVID-19, volunteers may begin their sessions via phone or video chat, but ultimately will be expected to meet their Compeer friend in person following socially distanced guidelines.
