Become a Compeer Volunteer to a Male Youth Client

Save to Favorites

Compeer Program at Coastal Behavioral Healthcare


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.
