Making Friends, Changing Lives.

Participating in the Compeer Program requires a referral from a Mental Health Professional. 

Once a referral is received, Compeer will make a match with an adult trained volunteer based on mutual interests, location and availability. Although Compeer Chautauqua is continually recruiting, screening and training new volunteers, sometimes it is difficult to make a suitable match and an individual will then be included in our waitlist. Waitlist participants and/or families are often invited to join Compeer events through our Engagement Services.

For additional information on the matching process, please visit the How Do I Volunteer section on this website.
