Victimization provoked by their sexual orientation (verbal abuse, threats of physical violence, etc.)
How Can WE Help? The Trevor Project is a non-profit endeavor established to promote acceptance for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth and to aid in crisis and suicide prevention among that group.
The Trevor Lifeguard Workshop Program was developed to help young people: Become more aware of the issues surrounding sexuality and gender identity Promote acceptance of GLBT youth nationwide as well as teach young people the warning signs of suicide as well as how to respond to those warning signs.
Project Volunteers help in various ways: Assisting the Program Department with outreach efforts to schools and youth service providers around the county so that they may refer young people in crisis to The Trevor Helpline Becoming a counselor on The Trevor Helpline, the only nationwide, around-the-clock suicide prevention helpline for GLBT
