Over the years I have been involved in many organizations that have served the GLBT community in different ways. For the past three years I have been volunteering as a helpline counselor for THE TREVOR PROJECT and it has been--without a doubt--the most satisfying experience. The reason is this: unlike other organizations I have volunteered for, TREVOR adds the letter "Q" (for "questioning") to the target population it serves. While I think there are many civic, cultural, and political GLBT that do important work, I think the one segment of society that has been overlooked is America's youth, particularly those who are "questioning" their sexuality. I honestly believe they are the ones who need are help and support the most because in most cases, they have no one else to turn to.

The Great!

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

regards to the increase in the volume of calls and feedback we receive from our clients.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

continue with the good work that has been done thus far.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the commitment of the full-time staff and volunteers.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

caring, committed, and willing to do whatever it takes to keep America's GLBTQ youth safe.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

continue and expand its outreach program and open more helpline centers across the country.

Ways to make it better...

there were more room and resources for the helpline center.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

(like any organization) money.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I have enjoyed my time at TREVOR.

I believe the Trevor Project is an amazing Angel of a company. Knowing there is help out there-- when all else fails-- there is a hotline to call especially for GLBTQ. I believe ifany award should be given.. it should be to this amazing Organization. I have failed suicide-- and the Trevor Project has won me over with all my time and efforts!

Assisting youth that are troubled and are in need of one final helpline.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I believe those who are running it are doing a great job.. just need to expand more with volunteers in the midwest.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Knowing the outcome is better than words, or anything could ever fill.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I have not met any personally yet

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand to the midwest.. and be able to do more traveling to get the word out to more schools even in small towns.. Bullying doesnt just happen in LA or NYC.

Ways to make it better...

it is growing into an amazing experience.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Spreading the word.. and having enough volunteers.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I am on board 150%.. to volunteer and help out.

I think Tina Turner summarized it well: Simply The Best!! The Trevor Project is a greeat family of volunteers and staff who are truly committed to the cause and love what they do. A great organization built around the best bunch of people. =)

The Great!

Saving lives of young people across the country.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Feeling like I am making a difference to young people who have few other outlets or options. And also of course the fabulous group of volunteers!

cool, sweet, caring, cute, helpful, thoughtful, friendly, passionate, committed, intelligent, empathetic, resourceful, fun, talented, diverse, generous, and happy.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Save a lot more lives. A lot.

Ways to make it better...

I had a foot massage. Who doesn't LOVE those?

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Advertising the existence of the service they offer (Phone hotline for suicidal youth). And funding.

One thing I'd also say is that...

How could you not vote for this as the best non-profit in the world?? I've worked for other nonprofits, volunteered for others. This is the best.

The Trevor Project is a place that I recommend my friends to it frequently. I have friends that aren't even LGTB that I recommend to join TrevorSpace, a part of the Trevor Project, because I know that the community would accept them with open arms. After all, our straight allies are a key factor in reaching our freedoms and political goals. As for my experience with it, I've met people that I really respect. Here in South Dakota, the chances of meeting another LGTB youth are almost zero. Having the support elsewhere is better than not having it all and that's what I tell my friends who are in a tough spot with their families and communities, in South Dakota and elsewhere. The Trevor Project constantly puts out surveys so that the users that have used the hotline can give their feedback. I've particpated in surveys that ask regional questions about the treatment of LGTB in school and out. The Trevor Project is dedicated to discovering the problem areas. What they do with their information, I do not know, however, the fact that they ask for it is a huge step to me. The Trevor Project is an organization that has inspired me to do more for LGTB issues. Just being in the community and hearing what people say gets me going. Imagine what could happen if it continued to grow and the talk increased. The Trevor Project saves lives and gives them something they thought they had missing. I think that's absolutely bombastic.

The Great!

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

the amount of people who joined starting in 2009. It jumped up tremendously and that's awesome to see because it means that there are others out there wanting to be connected. People are being proactive.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Target areas that aren't high in LGTB population (seemingly) and specifically advertise in areas that aren't as supportive of LGTB rights.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

having the opportunity to meet individuals with interests similar and different to mine.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very hopeful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

be a rocking force. The impact they would have on youth would be felt all the way to the kids that use their fear as a weapon to bully LGTBQ youth. I go to a small school with less than 150 students. I know that everyone would be reached if Trevor had it.

Ways to make it better...

this site would have given me a perfect life and a lot of money. Nothing's perfect and I'm happy with what I have, so this site was just fine.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the same people who oppose everything LGTB folks do.

One thing I'd also say is that...

WOOT WOOT! Not only does this site provide support for LGTBQ and straight teens young adults, but it provides them a community where they can immerse themselves in *safely* and find support from their peers. It's truly a work of art and phenomenal. =)

This orgainization does a great job! They help young teens with the complications and feelings that young LGBTQ get. They help us by providing a toll free 24 hour hotline;devoted to helping and comforting us. As well as having Trevorspace which helps young lGBTQ kids interact with each other from all over the world;like a safe haven.

The Great!

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

Young teens.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Trevorspace.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind and caring.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

This organization not only provides a much-needed service for LGBTQ youth today, but ensures that the gay civil rights movement will be a sustainable quest for equality and justice. By giving today's young people resources, counseling, confidence, and hope, the Trevor Project engenders a sophisticated pride in todays LGBT youth and their allies.

The Great!

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

every way possible. Coming from a small, rural town, I knew how necessary such a helpline was from a young age. Now that I volunteer there, I can see the exigency and sustainability of our work.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Recruit more, expand more. Never sleep.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the diversity among the volunteers, and the diversity among the young people that reach out to us.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

phenomenal, selfless. Hopeful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Ensure that LGBT equality is achieved and sustained across the country.

Ways to make it better...

not much to say here.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

using the data we collect to communicate the urgency of our work.

One thing I'd also say is that...

the dedication I have been surrounded with at Trevor is unmatched in my life.

I first was introduced to The Trevor Project a little over a year ago at a pool party. Since then I have been a big supporter. The staff is all overwhelmingly nice. I have done about five events with them now and no stopping me. I am now apart of the administrative team for Trevor Space. I volunteer with or am associated with ten other agencies that deal with the LBGTQ community, I must say The Trevor Project is my favorite and is the most organized and put together group of them all. One of my groups (that didn’t know I was associated with Trevor) was speaking to me about other agencies and mentioned The Trevor Project has a model agency that they wish were more like. The Trevor Project is a source that I wish we didn’t need to have. But with increased pressure on the LBGTQ youth of day in schools and out in the world. Life isn’t getting that much easier for them. But The Trevor Project is there for them.

The Great!

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

The results show them themselfs. With Trevor Space alone, over 3000 new members in less than a years with little advertising.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Change little, but continue the efforts and make more high profile.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The people and staff and meeting new people and now new friends.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Were all outstandly nice and enjoyable.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Continue the efforts and make more outreach in school and in public forums

Ways to make it better...

Just nothing negative to say.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Like any group in theres times, fundraising.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I wish we didn't need The Trevor Project.
