What

The Trevor Project is dedicated to recruiting qualified volunteers to provide life-saving, life-affirming support to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth. As the heart of The Trevor Project, our volunteers accomplish societal and individual change by creating safe spaces for LGBTQ youth in crisis and promoting awareness of Trevor’s resources. Through their endeavors, Trevor is dedicated to uplifting and supporting our volunteers as they work to empower LGBTQ youth nationwide.

TrevorChat /TrevorText volunteers are trained to answer instant messages or texts online from young people who are struggling with issues such as coming out, LGBTQ identity, depression and suicide. Volunteers need access to a computer in a private location with a strong internet connection, and should be comfortable with instant messaging and with using the Internet.

Volunteers are required to sign a volunteer confidentiality and commitment agreement for this action.
