We have two volunteer opportunities and they only take one hour a week or 15 minutes a week!
Compeer volunteers are people from all walks of life, nationalities, various values, urban and suburban neighborhoods.
Compeer volunteers find an opportunity for personal growth and satisfaction by helping others.
Compeer volunteers increase social and communications skills, and encourage independence for Compeer friends.
Being a Compeer volunteer is rewarding and fits into your current lifestyle because you choose the hours just as you would with any friendship.
