Ways to help

TrevorChat & TrevorText Volunteer

TrevorChat/TrevorText volunteers are trained to answer chat 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. TrevorChat/TrevorText volunteers must be able to serve a minimum of a one-year commitment, with three to four 3-hour virtual shifts per month. Volunteers undergo a 40-hour virtual training.

TrevorLifeline Volunteer

TrevorLifeline volunteers are trained to answer calls on our 24/7 Lifeline from young people who are feeling suicidal or need a safe, non-judgmental place to talk. This is an onsite volunteer opportunity, and those interested need to live near our Call Centers in Los Angeles and New York City. TrevorLifeline volunteers must be able to serve a minimum of a one-year commitment, with two 4-hour, on-site shifts per month. TrevorLifeline volunteers undergo a 40-hour in-person training over two weekends, with additional follow-up training and monitored shifts.

Advocacy Volunteer

Advocacy volunteers conduct research related to our current local, state, and federal campaigns that advance laws and policies supporting LGBTQ youth in crisis. Some current projects include protecting LGBTQ youth from conversion therapy, advocating for LGBTQ competent suicide prevention policies in schools, and encouraging states to collect data reflecting sexual orientation and gender identity at time of death. Advocacy volunteers commit to volunteering one to two hours a week consistently for a minimum of a year.

How you help Volunteers are vital to Trevor’s work, and are instrumental in providing a safe and secure connection for LGBTQ youth to reach out. Trevor’s team welcomes individuals of all backgrounds into our volunteer family and our team works to uplift, recognize, and support our growing volunteer network. The life-saving work of The Trevor Project would not be possible without the dedication of our incredible volunteers.
About us Founded in 1998 by the creators of the Academy Award®-winning short film TREVOR, The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people under 25. Since then, hundreds of thousands of young people in crisis have reached out to The Trevor Project’s multiple in-person and online life-saving, life-affirming resources – the Trevor Lifeline, TrevorChat, TrevorText, and TrevorSpace, or participated in Trevor Education Trainings, or joined the Trevor Advocacy Network or their local Trevor Ambassadors or Trevor NextGen volunteer group.
