The life you change could be your own.


Looking for a meaningful volunteering opportunity in Rochester, NY? We are confident that Compeer Rochester volunteers receive as much as they give. In as little as four hours a month, you can make a tremendous impact on someone in our community who lives with mental illness — and enhance your own life in the meantime. After all, the many benefits of friendship apply to both people in the pair!  

Our volunteers are carefully matched according to mutual preferences and receive comprehensive, customized training, and personalized, constant support from Compeer Rochester staff. Plus, we provide ample opportunity to bond with the Compeer Rochester community through events and activities throughout the year, such as our annual cookout.

“I wish everyone knew how easy it is to get involved. We have a process and some screening, but once you get into it, the volunteer work itself is flexible. The work is rewarding and as beneficial to the volunteer as it is the client, especially for people who don’t get a lot of human interaction throughout their day.”

— Sara Passamonte, Vice President/Director of Programs
