Email: info@itgetsbetter.org
Website: www.itgetsbetter.org
Hours: Online Resource available 24/7
Services: The It Gets Better Project's mission is to
communicate to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender
youth around the world that it gets better, and to
7
create and inspire the changes needed to make it
better for them. Growing up isn’t easy. Many young
people face daily tormenting and bullying, leading
them to feel like they have nowhere to turn. This is
especially true for LGBT kids and teens, who often hide
their sexuality for fear of bullying. Without other openly
gay adults and mentors in their lives, they can't imagine
what their future may hold. In many instances, gay and
lesbian adolescents are taunted even tortured
simply for being themselves. While many of these teens
couldn’t see a positive future for themselves, we can.
The It Gets Better Project was created to show young
LGBT people the levels of happiness, potential, and
positivity their lives will reach if they can just get
through their teen years. The It Gets Better Project
wants to remind teenagers in the LGBT community that
they are not alone and it WILL get better.

requirements to access services.

Hours: 24/7
Services: The It Gets Better Project's mission is to
communicate to lesbian, gay, bisexual and
transgender youth around the world that it gets
better, and to create and inspire the changes needed
to make it better for them. Growing up isn’t easy.
Many young people face daily tormenting and bullying,
leading them to feel like they have nowhere to turn.
This is especially true for LGBT kids and teens, who
often hide their sexuality for fear of bullying. Without
other openly gay adults and mentors in their lives, they
can't imagine what their future may hold. In many
instances, gay and lesbian adolescents are taunted
even tortured simply for being themselves. While
many of these teens couldn’t see a positive future for
themselves, we can. The It Gets Better Project was
created to show young LGBT people the levels of
happiness, potential, and positivity their lives will
reach if they can just get through their teen years.
The It Gets Better Project wants to remind teenagers
in the LGBT community that they are not alone and
it WILL get better.
