This is such a great organization... I'm glad something like this is out there for today's youth, because it can be hard thinking that you're alone, with no one to talk to...
Amazing staff and team! Great mission and great cause. Such a great resource to youth across America. The Trevor Project, Inc. is a amazing resource to all youth, not just the LGBTQ community.
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.
Has helped a lot of rural youth without resources nearby to believe in themselves and not give in to fear and self-loathing.
As a member of our community, with my religious upbringing, i have had the unfortunate circumstance to see others, especially in my 18-20 year old years of life to see friends give into the TREMONDOUS and illogical pressures imposed upon them. If the Trevor project existed in San Diego and Orage county when i was but youngling, I beleive there would have been less losses and more peope here today who realize...your family are those who you choose, not always those we are born with. Support the Trevor Project, be it here at home or anywhere in the world. We can all participate and grow our world to make EVERY community count.
This organization saves lives, and reaches out to the small towns and rural regions in a way that few organizations have been able to do! I remain impressed by their dedication and drive, especially whenyou consider that many of their counselors are volunteers. The small but very professional staff of The Trevor Project deserve kudos for their leadership and training efforts!
The Trevor Project is an invaluable resource for the GLBTQ community. Without Trevor, many young people would have to traverse the very difficult process of coming out by themselves. Those who have supportive friends/family are lucky, this service is there for those who may not. The Trevor Project saves lives everyday!
In my opinion, there is no more crucial cause than the death of a young person by suicide. The Trevor Project educates all about how tragically common this is, especially among LGBT teens. The disproportionate prevalence underscores not only a huge problem, but also where resources can be allocated to make a real difference saving lives. The Trevor Project is doing just that. It is a life-saver for some and a rallying call for others, pushing us all to pay attention to the needs of LGBT teens and our ability to make a real impact.
Having been deeply involved in TBLG organizations for the past several years, I've had the opportunity to see in many organizations the policies that further our cause - or hold us back. Fortunately, we have an erudite organization like the Trevor Project that is making great strides without stumbling. They have become a respectable model of how to run an organization and create significant, real-world impact; this alone is enough to make me help them in any way I can (especially by plugging them like I am now), but the fact that I've seen and heard how much this means to the youth they serve will make me forever beholden to this organization.
I work with LGBT teens whom I often refer to The Trevor Project website. I have found that just giving out the phone number and website to our kids helps them know that not only do I care but others are available to help and they are not alone. Thank you for all of your great work!!!
