The Trevor Lifeline-The Trevor Project's key programmatic efforts include: The Trevor Lifeline is the only nationwide, around-the-clock crisis and suicide prevention lifeline for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth. The Trevor Lifeline is currently operated by the Randy Stone Call Centers, located on the East and West Coast and answers tens of thousands of calls per year. Currently the Lifeline is staffed by 160 trained volunteer counselors on the East and West Coast. "Dear Trevor" is an online, confidential Q&A forum for youth to ask questions to our counselors via the organization's website (www.TheTrevorProject.org). Answers are posted under specific topics, thus allowing all young people the opportunity to benefit from similar questions posed. Topics range from issues around sexuality and coming out to problems with family acceptance. The Trevor Survival Kit is an educational kit which contains posters and wallet-sized cards with our toll-free Lifeline number, The Trevor Workshop Guide and the short film, Trevor. The kit is distributed nationwide to schools and youth service providers and was developed and updated in partnership with mental health and education professionals to help educators discuss sexual orientation, suicide and suicide prevention among youth. The Trevor School Workshop Program sends trained facilitators to schools to conduct workshops and spark a dialog around the issues of sexual orientation and suicide and talk about some of the ways young people cope with feelings of isolation, being different, and not feeling accepted by their families and friends.
