Established in 2014, CompeerCORPS is an extension of the traditional Compeer model that is designed to serve our veteran population and to create a supportive network for veterans who could benefit from a veteran peer mentor and community relationships. Veteran volunteer mentors are matched with a veteran based on interests, age-range, military service and gender.
Who We Serve
- U.S. military veterans from all combat and peacetime eras.
- Veterans referred by a behavioral health provider or veteran
- Veterans working through the transition into civilian life.
Trust. Support. A Friend.
Becoming a friend or volunteer through CompeerCORPS works the same way as the traditional Compeer program. Apply as a volunteer to be matched with a fellow veteran in need of support, or speak to your mental health provider to be referred as a friend.
