I love what The Trevor Project does - it's important work and they do it well. TrevorSpace especially seems to be a wonderful tool for queer youth to find community, no matter where they are geographically.

I've been involved with The Trevor Project for over a year and can genuinely say that it's one of the most incredible, selfless organizations of which I've ever been a part. The people are kind and giving and the mission could not be more important. Although it's a LGBTQ Helpline, Trevor never turns away anyone, gay, straight or other who needs help and guidance.

The Trevor Project is a very important resource, if not the only resource, for LGBT youth across the country. I got involved with Trevor because I wish there was a resource like this when I was younger and I do not want the LGBT youth of today and tomorrow to have to suffer the same kind of isolation, grief and misplaced guilt that some of us had to go through as we struggled with our identities. As the Trevor Project's visibility increases, the call volume also increases and more money and volunteers are needed. While the helpline is an important resource for those pushed to the edge, Trevor is expanding their education programs in schools and communities to help prevent the bullying and abuse that lead LGBT and questioning youth to need the helpline in the first place. The Trevor Project is an amazing organization.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Stories of suicide survivors who made it thanks to the helpline.

I heard about the Trevor Project years ago when HBO first aired the film TREVOR, and jumped at the chance to get involved as a helpline counselor almost two years ago. I feel recommitted by the incredible energy and dedication of the staff and volunteers and everyone's vigilant dedication to the Project's mission, but most of all, by the boundless courage and strength of the teens and young adults who call the helpline, log onto trevor space, or write to dear trevor.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the young people i talk with, the events I've brought friends to, and the phone calls from a young person thanking the project for literally saving their life.

In 2008, I became a volunteer helpline counselor having known about the Trevor Project for a few years. Over the past 10 months, I have only become more passionate about the cause. To hear directly from young people across the country and listen to their stories of confusion, rejection, depression, and the whole gamut of other emotions makes me realize how absolutely necessary it is to have people available 24/7 to talk, or simply just to listen. Many times I have heard from callers that it is the first time they have talked to a gay person, or the first time they have considered that they don't need to be ashamed for being who they truly are. Many of us know that one of the best ways to get through tough times is to have someone to talk to, and for the many youth out there who can't talk to someone where they are, The Trevor Project will be there. The combination of the Helpline, TrevorSpace, Dear Trevor, Survival Kits, and school workshops allows The Trevor Project to take an effective, multi-faceted approach to crisis and suicide prevention.

The Trevor Project talks to young people every day who have no one else to turn to besides the counselors on the helpline. Speaking to one person who understands you can be the difference between accepting yourself and trying to hurt yourself, and Trevor provides understanding and support to every caller. The staff and volunteers are empathetic and professional, and I'm honored to be a part of it.

I have been volunteering with The Trevor Project for a year now and joining this organization was the best decision I ever made. The Trevor Project provides an invaluable service to LGBTQ youth throughout the country and the people that make up the organization are all amazing. Trevor serves as a reminder to struggling youth that they are not alone and provides an essential service that would be unavailable were it not for the hard work and dedication of all of its volunteers. I’m couldn't be prouder to be part of this organization filled with so many caring people that come together on a daily basis to save young lives.

The Great!

The Trevor Project is an INCREDIBLE organization. Social stigma puts a tremendous burden on gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth who can sometimes feel that the only way to make things better is to take their own lives. The Trevor Project is unique in doing outreach to educate teens about LGBT issues and to train volunteers to do suicide prevention and crisis intervention with youth on a daily basis. Through the various services provided by this organization, countless lives are saved and even more youth are given a sense that someone is there for them when it seems like no one else is.

being able to gauge the impact that it has on so many youth EVERY day.

The Trevor Project redefines the term "difference maker". The strides it is taking in the LGBT community are hugely heroic. The helpline saves lives daily and provides the much needed guidance to the young LGBT community that begets the all-important necessary sense of pride all people need.

The Trevor Project has enabled LGBT youth in any community to have a fighting chance when the expected support systems are failing in their lives. The staff is incredibly dedicated and inspiring to work with and does some of the most important work I've ever been a part of.
