Our Mission is to

A companion to the Young Adult Adaptation of the book, Unbroken: An Olympian’s Journey from Airman to Castaway to Captive by Laura Hillenbrand

Character-Building Content

Immersive Methodology

Collaborative Interaction

Transformative Results

This dynamic new learning experience teaches high school students to emulate the life skills of Olympian and World War II hero Louis Zamperini in building character, overcoming adversity and resolving interpersonal conflicts.

Its four year public school pilot program demonstrated a significantly heightened level of student-to-student empathy and bonding that drew in even at-risk and “lone wolf” students.  Anecdotal evidence indicates a reduction in bullying and overall school violence, and a newfound cohesiveness among students.

Your contributions ensure life changing experiences for our youth!  Every dollar helps provide access to books, curriculum, day camps, mentoring, and a path to redemption!
