Get Involved


Compass’ volunteers team consists of over 300 volunteers a year.  Volunteers assist with answering phones, providing administrative support, maintaining the library, peer computer tutoring, and assisting with special events.  Without the support of volunteers, Compass could not deliver our high quality of services or produce large events like PrideFest and The Stonewall Ball.

Thank you for your support of Compass! Over 300 volunteers a year donate more than $100,000 in hours to Compass, creating a vibrant community of service. We couldn’t do what we do without our volunteers.

We often need volunteers for special events and we’re thrilled by your interest!


An intern is someone who works in a temporary position with an emphasis on on-the-job training rather than merely employment, making it similar to an apprenticeship. Student internships provide opportunities for students to gain experience in their field, determine if they have an interest in a particular career, create a network of contacts, or gain school credit.

Are you a high school, college or post-graduate student looking for an exciting and challenging environment to learn valuable skills that will help you advance in your career and in life? Then check out Compass’ internship program!

“We wanted to thank you for another amazing semester supervising our students in the field!  We have received wonderful feedback from the students, who have described such growth and success in their internships–none of which would have been possible without your support and supervision.  We recognize that your Field Instruction is going above and beyond and so appreciate your commitment to our students and to the continuing development of our profession.”
