E-mail: erin.sweeney@MHAST.org

The Compeer Youth Program encourages at risk youth to build self confidence, self-reliance, and healthy relationships by involving them in one-to-one mentorships, innovative programs, and regular positive social contact. The answers to the following questions help the Compeer staff to match you with an appropriate person who will benefit from your friendship. Compeer does not discriminate based on race, creed, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, marital or veteran status or sexual orientation. Compeer is aware of the sensitive nature of some of the questions asked on the application form and during the interview process. It has been our experience that having as much information as possible about each individual, whether a volunteer or client, increases our ability to match people successfully. All information is requested to ensure, to the greatest degree possible, the success of the matching process. If you have any questions about any part of this form or are uncomfortable answering any of the questions, please speak directly with a Compeer Volunteer Coordinator.
