The Compeer Youth Mentoring Program encourages youth who are at-risk of developing social, emotional, and behavioral issues to build self-confidence, self-reliance, and healthy relationships. This is achieved by involving them in one-to-one mentorships, innovative programs, and regular positive social contact. Youth are referred into the program by their therapists, school counselors, or case managers once all have agreed that the youth would greatly benefit from having a mentor. Matches are made with sensitivity to the interests and availability of the youth and the volunteer.

The Compeer Adult Program encourages individuals with a mental health diagnosis to build self-confidence, self-reliance, and healthy relationships by involving them in one-to-one friendships, innovative programs, and regular social contact. The Compeer Program is designed to help reduce the isolation and the feelings of loneliness experienced by many of our participants. Our goal at Compeer is to provide companionship, friendship, and the needed support system to help individuals feel more connected to the community. Participants are referred into the Compeer Program by their therapists, counselors, or case managers.
