Forget About Me (FAM) Projects
At Discovery Ranch, we believe that self-sacrifice is an important part of healing. For this reason, we designed Forget About Me (FAM) Projects. When your son is in the final stages of his treatment program, he will design his own FAM Projects. First, he will complete an on-campus project. Then, he will complete an off-campus project. In order to pay for a part of these projects, he must sacrifice participation in a group activity.
Your son will design these projects himself. He will first write a proposal. He must also create a scrapbook to memorialize the project.
FAM Projects are as diverse as our students. Previous projects have included building a house with Habitat for Humanity, making blankets for hospitals and homeless shelters, and a video documentary on eating disorders.
