The Trevor Project is an American nonprofit organization founded in 1998. Focused on suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth, they offer a toll-free telephone number where confidential assistance is provided by trained counselors. The stated goals of the project are to provide crisis intervention and suicide prevention services for youth, as well as to offer guidance and resources to parents and educators in order to foster safe, accepting, and inclusive environments for all youth, at home, schools and colleges.
The Trevor Project also advocates for the rights and futures of LGBTQ young people through legislation, litigation, and coalition-building. The Trevor Project campaigns to protect LGBTQ young people from conversion therapy, works to ensure schools adopt comprehensive suicide prevention policies, publishes educational resources that cover a wide range of topics to help increase support and understanding, and collects LGBTQ life data and conducts research in order to better serve the LGBTQ community.
