The Trevor Project, Inc.
June 6, 2009

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.

More feedback

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

the mission, the people, the effectiveness

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

professional and qualified.

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.
