Volunteer of the Month

We work with an amazing group of volunteers. We want to honor their hard work and dedication to the cause of creating a safe, inclusive community in Northern Colorado.

Brett was an intern this past fall in the Fort Collins office, where he assisted with direct service and prevention. In his time with us, he assisted many people both on the hotline and in-person. Additionally, he facilitated one of SAVA’s SpeakUp! groups, educating young men about a variety of topics! Brett was also a huge part of making the SAVA Soiree such a success by securing donations, preparing for the event, assisting staff at the Soiree, and much more. Brett continues to volunteer on the hotline and will continue SpeakUP next semester. We are so grateful to have Brett as part of the SAVA team! Thank you Brett for all that you do!


Brett, tell us a little about yourself.

If you could throw any kind of party, what would it be like and what would it be for?

I’ve never thrown a party before, I’m not sure how! I would want all of my closest friends there, with a lot of awesome food! We would play games like Quiplash. It would probably be more of a hangout rather than party!

This is a fun one. Have you ever been told you look like a celebrity?

I was once told I look like Sam Claflin who played Finnick Odair in “The Hunger Games.” It was one of the best compliments I’ve ever received, even if it’s not the most accurate!

If you could choose anyone to be your mentor, who would it be and why?

I would want it to be Betty White. I value advice and philosophies about life, and I think Betty White has got it down.

And finally Brett, what do you enjoy most about volunteering at SAVA?

What I enjoy more about volunteering for SAVA is being able to change society for the better.

Congratulations, Brett!  Thank you for everything that you do.
