The Barrett Martin Havran Little Steps Big Futures Program

The Barrett Martin Havran Little Steps Big Futures Program is the Big Brothers Big Sisters educational initiative for Littles. Little Steps focuses on grade-school aged children by deliberately intervening with those who have exhibited specific academic challenges, falling behind their peers in the 3rd-6th grades. Little Steps programming seeks to better inform Bigs of their Littles status and progress in school and then helps them map a course for academic success through the life of their match. Big Futures targets 7th – 12th grade Littles, as well as our Teen Bigs. Big Futures programming provides to Littles and their Bigs tools and experiences designed to help them stay in school, graduate and be prepared for college, the military or the workforce.
