The Trevor Project, Inc.
July 7, 2009

The Trevor Project has been an ongoing program that has proved vital to numerous LGBT youth. Through the implementaiton of their new program, Trevor Space, they have allowed youth from across the country (LGBT and Allied youth)to connect in a safe environment, share their stories and continue to provide one-on-one personal mentoring. Not only does Trevor Space and the Trevor Project provide suicide prevention for LGBT youth, it provides them with a situation in which they can feel comfortable about who they are, explore their identity, and find similar youth with whom they can share their experiences and simply become friends.

that they really do save lives help the entire community allow individuals to give back in small ways

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

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

Ways to make it better...

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

financial and personel restraints. They simply do not have enough money or staff to expand the program at this time.
