FARMINGTON – Sexual Assault Victims Emergency Services introduce Brandon Fuentes. Fuentes, a senior majoring in rehabilitation services at the University of Maine at Farmington, will spend his spring semester as an intern with SAVES, working on several projects, including making a video that will be used to train new hotline advocates, a community service fair and a middle school poster campaign with SAVES School-Based Intervention and Prevention Program.

The school program serves students in all four public high schools in Franklin County.

Fuentes is organizing the annual March for Violence Free Communities, which raises awareness about interpersonal violence, In addition, he will complete the 12-week advocate training and plan activities for Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Fuentes, whose long-term plans include a graduate program in rehabilitation counseling, hopes to use the internship as an opportunity to gain experience in how agencies work.

When Fuentes, who grew up in Colorado and misses the warm winters, is not at the agency, he can be found playing golf, skiing or eating Mexican food.
