Compeer Sarasota is looking for male volunteers to work with male youth clients. Compeer matches children who have been diagnosed with a mental health disorder with a fully-vetted volunteer who acts as a friend, role model and mentor. You will be asked to complete a background check, and you will participate in training that usually lasts two hours. We will try to match you with a youth who shares your interests. During this time of the pandemic, all our matches are meeting virtually. You can learn more about Compeer at our website, https://www.compeersarasotayouth.org.

If you are looking for a rewarding experience, you can't beat being a Compeer mentor. And on top of that, it's fun for you and your match.
