First year students are welcome as volunteers.   Sophomore or above standing and a 2.0 or better gpa is necessary to receive credit.  
Students earn 1 credit per semester and may take the Compeer experience for credit for up to 6 semesters. Students may earn experiential credits in psychology (Psych 298) or in nursing (Nur. 298).   This is an excellent experience for pre-med, nursing, psych, soc, and pre-law students. 

Students are assigned in pairs to programs that serve people with mental illness and spend a minimum of 2 hours a week at the program engaging in social and recreational activities with clients.   Time slots are available on weekends and weekdays and during either the day or early evening.   (Students without transportation can pair up with a student who has a car, choose a site within walking distance, or choose a site on the bus route.)   The paperwork for registering for credit will be completed during the training.   Just show up if you are interested.
