Introducing Our Corporate Ally Network: Championing LGBTQ+ Young People Together

BY: Trevor News

At The Trevor Project, we believe that adult allies play a crucial role in supporting and uplifting LGBTQ+ young people. We are thrilled to announce the pilot launch of a new program at Trevor, our Corporate Ally Network, to encourage a deeper connection to our mission from our passionate Corporate Ally community. Joining us for the inaugural launch to help us build out our programming and impact of the network are some of our long standing partners across various industries, including CVS Health, PUMA, and United Airlines.  

What is the Corporate Ally Network?

The Corporate Ally Network brings together professionals from highly aligned national corporations who are committed to championing the rights and well-being of LGBTQ+ young people across the United States. These individuals, alongside their sponsoring companies, will leverage their resources, personal and professional networks, and influence to generate vital support for The Trevor Project’s life-saving services.

Members of the Corporate Ally Network will receive tailored and in-depth trainings on Trevor’s resources, programs, and impact to be able to serve as official liaisons of The Trevor Project within their communities and workplace. Members will be equipped with the knowledge and tools to advocate for increased support and allyship for LGBTQ+ young people, while working to create safer and more inclusive spaces for all. Through this tailored hands on approach and direct access to Trevor content matter experts members will learn to leverage their platforms effectively and amplify our message of advocacy and support for LGBTQ+ young people.

Joining Us in Making a Difference

We are thrilled to include a select few employees from CVS Health, PUMA, and United Airlines in our pilot program. “This pilot program will allow The Trevor Project to learn directly from our partners on the issue areas and initiatives that are most vital to them. We look forward to using their insight to help us adapt our programming and resources to have the greatest impact for our community. Welcoming these partners into the exclusive network of Trevor advocates positions us all to make transformative change through leadership in the lives of LGBTQ+ young people.” said Troy Robinson, Chief Development Officer. These pilot member organizations are proudly signaling their commitment to creating safer and more inclusive spaces for LGBTQ+ young people. Together, we can make a tangible difference in the lives of young people, ensuring they feel supported, valued, and empowered to be their authentic selves in all areas of life, personal and professional

We are united in our mission to protect and celebrate LGBTQ+ young people. Hear directly from our pilot partner representatives:
