The Compeer Youth Mentoring Program encourages youth who are at-risk of developing social, emotional, and behavioral issues to build self-confidence, self-reliance, and healthy relationships. This is achieved by involving them in one-to-one mentorships, innovative programs, and regular positive social contact. Youth are referred into the program by their therapists, school counselors, or case managers once all have agreed that the youth would greatly benefit from having a mentor. Matches are made with sensitivity to the interests and availability of the youth and the volunteer.
“The positive relationship between my son and his mentor has improved his relationship with me and improved his schoolwork. He looks forward to spending time with his friend.” – David
