Working hard. Getting along. Doing your best. Experiential learning activities all day long give Discovery students the chance to practice those skills and many others.
Our working ranch campus provides the setting for experiential learning in our feeder calf and peer leadership programs, as well as FAM (Forget About Me) projects and academic experientials. Each activity lets students use relationship skills in a variety of work and play settings.
Just as important, they help students learn and apply life principles that are true for everyone, everywhere:
- Hard work
- Service and sacrifice
Students practice these principles in an environment that replicates the responsibilities of adult living. They have a “real time” opportunity to see the impact of their behavior as it happens. Staff or mentors will often stop an activity or conversation and ask a student, “What skills have you learned that you could use right now?” Students can identify and apply a principle they have learned.
