The Trevor Project is the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ young people. We are a non-profit that provides 24/7 life-saving support via phone, text, and chat. We also operate the world’s largest safe space social networking site for LGBTQ youth and run innovative research, education, and advocacy programs. We’ve been saving lives every day for over 20 years.
Who you are
Creative. Your friends think of you as an amazing storyteller, you’re able to captivate folks with your words.
Succinct and Detail-oriented. You know how to boil a narrative into a short headline or soundbite without any grammatical errors or typos.
Culturally Attuned. You are hyper-aware, and always willing to learn more about the sensitive nature of our work and how to speak about it in a way that makes folks feel like they’re being respected and seen, and not exploited.
Strategic. You understand the nuances of e-mail versus SEO, social copy versus a script for a long-form video, and use that expertise to always produce work that takes those differences into consideration.
Goal-oriented. You set aggressive goals that are achievable, then focus on exceeding them.
Collaborative. You understand that the best way to meet and exceed goals is through outstanding teamwork.
Flexible. You are comfortable navigating ambiguity and working through competing priorities.
Passionate. You care about LGBTQ youth. You care about saving lives. You want to come to work and feel inspired every day. You want to change the world.
Fun. The work we do is very serious, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have fun. We know how to have a good time and you should too.
