Volunteer!
While it may seem that there are many steps to our process, we do so with the safety in mind of the young people that we serve. At each of these steps you will receive continuous guidance from our Community Engagement Staff and once you are placed into a program, you will receive support from the manager of that program during your time volunteering with The Trevor Project.
Please keep in mind: Although we will work to find the best match for each volunteer, because of the nature of the work we do, not everyone is a match for our programs. We reserve the option to refuse applicants if we feel they are not the best fit.
