A Look Back at Our Incredible Year…

2017 Year End Review

Video Curriculum for Classrooms

Video Curriculum for Classrooms is bringing our Core Values to thousands of students with more schools reaching out to get the curriculum for their students. Around 10,000 students per week are getting the tools they need to succeed.


Summit, our leadership training facility, continues to see incredible transformations thanks to generous partners that have stepped up in a big way. We challenge you to join forces with others and give! We hosted Leadership Camps this summer, Day Trips this fall, and groups from across the community… lives are changing at Summit.


We have cultivated some amazing partnerships including:

University of Notre Dame! In partnership with the University of Notre Dame, we will be tracking the benefits of our programming, specifically the social emotional impact on students. Through this intense data tracking, FSL will be able to keep a pulse on effectiveness and raise the bar for students across Michiana and beyond.

Epic Dance Studios! Partnering with Epic Dance, we’ve created Five Star Dance! Currently offered at Pierre Moran Middle School, Five Star Dance is offering yet another way for students to take lessons they learn through our curriculum and apply it to real life.

USA Archery and US Junior Olympics! With this incredible partnership, the goal is for students to perform in archery and other target sports with a high degree of success while instilling our Core Values. This is an excellent opportunity for students to participate in an activity they may not have experienced before and gain confidence.


The Five Star Golf Open

The Five Star Golf Open was a big success and we are thankful to all sponsors and participants. We were honored to be joined by NFL greats and Notre Dame legends, Rocket Ismail and Tim Brown.

Five Star Radio

Did you know we have a radio show? Having this radio platform to share stories of impact has been one of our most useful tools in bringing more students to our programming. Tune in every Saturday at 11AM at
