Just 15 years ago, The Trevor Project began with a film and started building connections with audiences all over the United States. Now, we're excited to use this unique medium to share some of our video highlights from fiscal year 2013.

TREY: A Student Project
In Spring 2013, students at High Tech Middle School in San Diego created their own production company with the guidance of their teacher, Mr. Terronez. Together, the 6th, 7th, and 8th graders created Trey, a short film about not fitting in, learning to be yourself, accepting others, and getting help when you need it - all with puppet characters!
The class decided to feature The Trevor Project in their story and after working together with Trevor's staff, decided to highlight our newest program, TrevorText, as the resource Trey reaches out to for support. The students also had a chance to meet two of Trevor's founders, James Lecesne and Peggy Rajski, in a Google+ Hangout.
