Through your partnership with our Barrett Havran Memorial Big Taste of Fort Worth, you are working with us to empower youth in Tarrant County through high-quality, professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships.  Because of the continued success of our Barrett Havran Memorial Big Taste of Fort Worth, we have been fortunate enough to continue to respond to our community’s demand for preventative services and educational resources. In 2018 Big Brothers Big Sisters Tarrant County launched our Mentor 2.0 Barrett Havran Legacy Program. This program pairs a mentor with a high school student, where mentoring takes place each week during the school year through our online communication on our proprietary platform complemented with pre-scheduled in person events every 4 to 6 weeks.  Together, through one-to-one mentoring we are increasing the likelihood that our most vulnerable population will achieve educational success, higher aspirations, greater confidence and better relationships, while also avoiding risky behaviors.


Our outcome-based mentoring program continues to make a significant and enduring impact on children’s lives: while the dropout rate for Texas’ children is a shocking 38%, a full 98% of our Tarrant County Littles program were promoted to the next grade level.
