Volunteers are positive role models who help raise self-esteem, increase social and communication skills, build trust, increase a sense of belonging, and encourage independence for their Compeer friend. After completing the application process, volunteers are presented with information about potential matches based on their areas of interest and the needs of our clients.If you believe that you could be a friend to someone who is striving for mental wellness and you are interested in volunteering or learning more about Compeer, please call 716-883-3331 x310 or fill out an application on our website at https://compeerbuffalo.org/ today!
