Steps to Volunteer

Home Previous Page


Complete an application and choose your friend.

Once you've completed an application, a Compeer professional will set up a brief interview to answer your questions, discuss your interest, and help you choose your friend.  Every Compeer relationship is based on mutual preference and interest.  Each is monitored and guided by a mental health professional and our experienced staff.

Attend a training session.

This provides program information and guidelines, and lets you meet other volunteers/mentors.  Later, you'll meet with the mental health professional who has been working with your Compeer friend.


Meet your Compeer friend.

If you'd like, we have lots of suggestions for activities that you can share.  We provide free or discount tickets to many events.  We also sponsor activities where you can get together with other volunteers/mentors and their friends.

Call us anytime.

When you have questions, the Compeer staff and mental health professionals are available to help.
