Mission Statement

The Compeer program encourages at risk youth ages 5-17 and adults with mental health diagnosis ages 17+ to build self confidence, self-reliance, and healthy relationships by involving them in one-to-one mentorships/friendships, innovative programs, and regular positive social contact.

Description

In the Compeer Youth Program: our community volunteers engage in supportive one-to-one mentorships with youth who are at-risk (ages 5 to 17). A mentor offers the gift of friendship, personal attention and encouragement, promoting self-confidence, self-reliance and healthy social engagement.

In the Adult Compeer Program: a volunteer has the unique opportunity to provide companionship and social support for an individual receiving mental health services. A Compeer friendship match helps to reduce the isolation and feelings of loneliness experienced by many of our program participants.

Would you recommend Compeer Mentoring Program?

by Corey V. from Endicott, NY (April 28, 2019)
To help the person(s) who have more self-work, a better understanding of life and what could come with it if you put forth the effort and to never give up on your goals, interests and obligations even when adversity is right next to you like it has been with myself. Most importantly, what you can do about these things and how to do so.
