Compeer Chautauqua - Southern Tier Environments for Living

Compeer Chautauqua

There are many youth aged 5-17 in Southern and Northern Chautauqua county waiting to be matched with a new friend for an hour a week. Compeer volunteer mentors support the emotional growth and social well-being of youth in our community.

It is amazing how the simple gift of one hour can transform a young life. All it takes is doing something like going for a walk, attending a sporting event, playing ball or enjoying an ice-cream cone.

If you care, you qualify. Make a pledge to help a youth in your community.

YOU can bring the Healing Power of Friendship to a young person.

The life you change may be your own.
