Compeer facilitates the formation of friendly companionship with a person who is receiving mental health services. You do not need any kind of degree or experience with mental health! Simply be a "friend" through supportive phone calls!
Minimal and flexible time committment! A Compeer Calling volunteer makes a friendly telephone call or two every week totaling at least 20 minutes of conversation. This provides support for friends who are waiting for a match. Compeer Calling is a great opportunity for those with busy schedules, lack of flexible transportation, or temporary status in Sarasota. Compeer Calling volunteers receive the same screening, interview, and training as other Compeer volunteers.
Compeer provides a fun and flexible volunteer opportunity that fits into your current lifestyle. There are endless rewards and opportunities for personal growth and satisfaction when you join the Compeer family!
Students and part-time resident of Sarasota: we can find a way to fit your schedule! Still contact us if you are interested!
