A Forget About Me, or FAM, Project is required to advance to Levels 4 and 5, Discovery’s highest levels of achievement. FAM projects benefit the school or the community.
Level 4 advancement requires the student to complete an on-campus FAM project. Level 5 FAM projects are off-campus service. The proposed projects must take a minimum of three hours to complete. They are funded, in part, by the students sacrificing a group activity.
The student is required to write a paper describing the project and how the work will be accomplished. When the project has been completed, students must write about what they learned and what they might do differently. They must also complete a scrapbook page with highlights from the project.
FAM projects are as diverse as our students. Previous projects have included building a house with Habitat for Humanity, reading to elementary school students, making blankets for hospitals and homeless shelters, painting hopscotch and four square game areas, manning first aid stations for charity runs, painting corrals, welding hitching posts, and a video documentary on eating disorders.
