Barrett Havran Memorial Big Taste of Fort Worth
April 7, 2019
Omni Fort Worth
This year we are excited to celebrate 40 years! Our 40th Annual Barrett Havran Memorial Big Taste of Fort Worth will be held on Sunday, April 7, 2019 at Omni Fort Worth. 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 online communication on our proprietary platform. The mentor and mentee also meet in person with pre-scheduled 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.
