I was relatively new to the West Hollywood/Los Angeles area when I began volunteering for The Trevor Project in 2001. Over the years I met the most wonderful, passionate and dedicated group of people that one can imagine. These people were saving lives and changing lives and doing as a remarkable team. Some of my closest friendships started through my work with Trevor. Volunteering can change your life too.

The Great!

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

that when I started they only received about 300 calls per month to the Trevor Helpline, now, 8 years later, they receive over 1,800 per month. They continue to find ways to get the word out to other youth that feel alone and have suicidal thoughts.

Ways to make it better...

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

keep pushing forward to eventually make the mission of the organization obsolete.

Ways to make it better...

More people participated so that no LGBT or Questioning Youth feels that suicide is their only option.

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

resources, financial and otherwise, to get the message to all schools.

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

it takes everyone to help.

An amazing organization that I've been a part of for many years. I've watched The Trevor Project grow and have seen the difference that it makes in young lives. I remembering touring the phone room early on and hearing the astounding statistics of gay teen suicide. I was also told that many of the calls were from children in the south and from Christian homes. Having been raised in Texas, son of a Baptist minister, I understood all too well -- and it broke my heart. I dream of a world where a day will come when we will not need this organization. Until then, they have my undying support. Del Shores

I love that even though the organization has grown by leaps and bounds over the 10 years it's been operational and serves more people than ever before, it has never strayed from its core mission-- to aid in suicide prevention among gay and questioning youth. It has created more programs to address that need and has reached more people as a result. The core program--the 24/7 tollfree crisis hotline--has now answered over 125,000 calls since inception. It has literally helped save lives. What could be better than that...

I discovered The Trevor Project online roughly four years ago and immediately felt compelled to get involved. This organization is literally saving lives, and I knew I had to be a part of it. From the helpline, to the school program, to the website, Trevor continues to reach out to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth. Trevor reminds them that they are not alone and helps them through what can be a very difficult time. I’m very proud to be affiliated with an organization filled with so many wonderfully caring people coming together to save young lives.

I currently serve as the Vice Chairman on the board of Directors for The Trevor Project. We operate the only 24 hour, year round suicide prevention helpline for gay and questioning youth. To confidentially connect directly with a helpline counselor has not only given thousands of teens hope and support it has helped save young lives. The Trevor Project also provides guidance and vital resources to educators and parents of potentially suicidal gay and questioning youth. The organization is fiscally responsible and holds successful, entertaining and informative events honoring those who have been an inspiration to LGBTQ youth. The staff, the counselors and the volunteers are all dedicated and passionate about the cause. Its an inspiring group of which I'm proud to be affiliated.

There are many GLBT non profits out there-- some political, some activist-- and many times you can't agree with their entire mission. But with the Trevor Project, it's impossible not to identify with its mission. Every one of us, at some point of another, have felt like Trevor. We've felt alone and unwanted. This organization is here to show everyone they are not alone and not only wanted, but loved. When I hear the stories of the lives we save... yes, the lives we SAVE, it gives me chills.

Trevor has found a place in my heart. It attracts the most compassionate, caring people that I have ever worked with and I find myself, again and again, in awe of the work of our helpline counselors. I am so glad there is an organization dedicated to this cause. My greatest hope is that more youth find out about Trevor and take advantage of its services.

I had the ability to get more people on board in helping to support Trevor. It deserves more attention from the LGBT community as a whole.

The Trevor Project is a unique and effective organization serving LGBT youth through a variety of programs and services. Young people - many of whom have no place to turn - can rely on The Trevor Project for support and counseling and resources through the Trevor Helpline. Our school program brings important information and discussions to classrooms on the nature of homophobia, impact of language and behavior and responding to depression and suicide. And Trevor space provides a safe and supportive networking community on-line.

The Great!

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

the many young people who have called the Helpline with questions and concerns; I have seen first-hand how The Trevor Project has saved lives.

The Trevor Project provides critical and unique services that prevent young people from making an irreversible decision to end their own life because they are simply discovering who they are - and are not supported by family, friends, religion, and society. The organization is amazing, the Board, the staff, the volunteers, the donors, the constituents—across all the full scope of the organization. Even in 2009, young gay people kill themselves because they think there is no future for them. These kids need to be supported for all the gifts they can bring to their communities—what would have happened if Harvey Milk had killed himself when he was a teen? Or Ellen De Generes? or Barney Frank? or Elton John? Or Dustin Lance Black? All of our lives would be diminished. Some of these kids are our leaders of tomorrow. And Trevor is addressing two issues that are still not talked about enough publicly - being gay and suicide. They are doing the most important, life-saving work.

The Great!

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

educate families of faith, school teachers and administrators on the appalling statistics for GLBTQ kids who contemplate and complete suicide and ways to prevent their children from killing themselves. Deliver more empowering activities for LGBTQ youth

Ways to make it better...

my experience is one of the most rewarding ones of my life.

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

marketing its services to all the young people who need them. not just in the US but internationally.

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

Life is precious and Trevor is the expert in sustaining life for LGBTQ youth.
