There's a special kind of credit and experience you gain working toward friendship.
Along with your university awarding your time, Compeer pairs you up with someone that is looking for a friend and mentor. Someone to tag along and do the things that you probably already do for fun.
Compeer Sarasota is backed by a national friends and mentor program that believes volunteers just like you can make all the difference in the lives of people living with mental illness in the local area.
Typically, you spend about 4 hours per month together in the community. Mostly, it’s you doing the things you regularly enjoy, and sharing that with someone who truly appreciates your time, energy and company.
It adds to their lives and most certainly, it will add to yours. Everybody wins.
