Crisis Service Counselor (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMarch 11, 2017
The Trevor Project is a great good for the world. I've witnessed outstanding efforts to impove the lifeline and all services provided by Trevor. Their are about 20 part time workers. If the Trevor Project would make great efforts to give those part time workers full time it would facilitate a stronger program. Without offering healthcare to their Crisis workers, who directly support suicidal and at risk youth, leads to a great flaw in the programs design and hinders the ability of the program sustaining itself into the distant future.

Great Mission and Volunteers
Director (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CASeptember 23, 2014
The Trevor Project's mission is inspiring, and anyone seeking to work here should make sure to tap into the expertise, insight, and values that draw hundreds of volunteers to show up every day to respond to cries for help from LGBTQ youth in crisis. The heart of this organization is in its volunteers, and the more rooted you are to them and the youth the organization serves, the more satisfying your job will be.

The organization has adopted a new strategic plan, and has refocused its work to invest even more significantly into its crisis intervention services. While focus on suicide prevention efforts, such as education, advocacy, marketing, and communications, still exists, the role of prevention in achieving the mission is more limited than in recent years. The new direction marks a shift in how The Trevor Project interacts with the outside world, as prevention efforts are highly visible, but the confidential nature of crisis intervention work demands more happens, "behind the scenes."

Make no mistake: working at The Trevor Project is incredibly rewarding, but like many organizations, it has its share of office politics. That said, the organization strongly values work-life balance among its staff, and what it calls, "self-care."

In short, if you are mission-driven, then this may be the place for you.

Enjoyed my tenure at the Trevor Project.

A future where the possibilities, opportunities and dreams are the same for all youth, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
