Being a Compeer volunteer is as easy as being a friend!

What do you like to do with your friends?

These are the types of activities that our Compeer clients like to do, too, only they often find it more difficult to make friends to enjoy life’s simple pleasures. Compeer volunteers are matched to our clients based on their common interests and hobbies – and then they spend time together, just as any friends would.

Being a Compeer volunteer is rewarding and fits into your current lifestyle because you choose the hours just as you would with any friendship. Most Compeer friends get together once a week for an hour, choosing the time that best fits your schedule.
