In a society full of endless possibilities and grave concerns, the need for strong leaders is vital to our growth and success as a whole. Although this call is essential, it constantly goes unheard, and thus widens the gaps of inequality and limits the ability for all voices to be heard. flightunit is a Student Leadership & Lifestyle Brand and recognizes this reality. flightunit is dedicated to creating stronger leaders and shaping a culture that supports, encourages, and inspires growth. To meet our goals, we have developed flightunit’s “Five Feathers” concepts and have implemented valuable programs that include mentorship and skill-development to align with our outlook. We use various platforms to engage students, including workshops (off & on-line), conferences, and even all-star sporting events. We are excited to continue our work of empowering a new generation of empathetic and astute thinkers.

flightunit is extremely grateful for the work we have accomplished since 2010 and we are humbled to be able to continuously have a positive impact on young people. flightunit is a proud partner of both the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) and the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board(DPCDSB) in addition we have strong working relationships with several other school boards in the Greater Toronto Area and beyond. To aid our leaders, we have developed the “Five Feathers”—the five types of people that form a flightunit. These people should be within every leader’s network to increase their level of success and their ability to help build a better life and a healthier community.

1) The Mentor is more experienced or knowledgeable than the mentee and helps guide them. They have a distinct area of expertise and usually provide advice about career development. The mentor supports the growth of the mentee through learning and encouragement. The primary purpose of the mentor is to drive personal growth, increase responsibility, and maintain accountability of the mentee while developing skills. The mentormay be older or younger than the mentee.

2) The Companion provides more than just a physical presence in your life. The companion helps your body resist illness, keeps your mind sharp, and helps you combat loneliness. The companion is a cheerleader. They are loyal and show you unconditional love and kindness. Science agrees that it’s essential for our survival to have a companion in our life.

3) The Connector is extremely resourceful. They have a strong, massive network and know people from a wide variety of areas and industries. The Connector is solution-oriented and can help open doors to opportunities. The Connector, through their communication and experience, is often creative, or they can at least connect you with someone who is. This access to creativity provides inspiration and outside-the-box perspectives to discuss ideas.

4) The Doer is rich from life experiences. They are very enjoyable to be around because they are very positive. The Doer will inspire you to live life at a higher level and will help you to step outside of your comfort zone. The Doer is action-oriented. They will help you reaffirm your commitment to success and

expand your perspective and level of open-mindedness.

5) The Realist provides different perspectives on ways you can improve. They serve as a reality-check, which keeps you grounded, strengthens your ideas and actions. The biggest strengths that the realist provides is their honesty and critical-thinking skills. They are always reliable for good insight and constructive feedback.

Words from Our Founder

As the founder of flighunit, I am fortunate and humbled that my vision has brought together so many great people and has been able to empower and change lives. We all have a purpose in life, and my goal is to inspire a new generation of leaders to improve themselves and the world around them.


I believe that in the process of growth, we must raise our moral standards so that we can live more purposeful and meaningful lives. As an organization, flightunit recognizes that if we want to live in an exceptional world, we need more exceptional people. Our mission is to produce outstanding people with outstanding mindsets. To accomplish this, we will provide them with functional tools that will be consistently useful and valuable throughout their lives.


Based on what we have accomplished to date, I am excited for our future in motivating, inspiring, and developing stronger leadership to improve our world. Life is not easy, but our obstacles are actually what allow us to be extraordinary if we only accept the challenge to be champions.

What the Feathers Represent

5 Feathers for Living an Enriched Life

flightunit’s 5 Feathers for a greater life: the foundation for happiness, peace, and enrichment.


flightunit is an official Student Success and Lifestyle brand dedicated to being the official voice of the student body.


flightunit has developed the 5 Feathers concept to help students and individuals lead a happier and more enriched life.


Our 5 Feathers are founded on the following beliefs:



The Power of the Conscious Mind

When we are aware of our influences and are focused on aligning with our moral compass, we will make better decisions that empower our minds and our souls. As individuals, we increase our potential when we are living more consciously. As an organization, flightunit focuses on increasing awareness in this area to showcase the immense benefit of living conscious lives.

Related to this, we offer:
1) Leadership Program
2) Foundations for Success Workshop Series
3) Going for Gold Business Workshop Series 

The Power of Energy

Energy is like a boomerang: the energy that we put out is the energy that we receive. Therefore, if we want to be surrounded by positive energy, we must funnel positivity into our relationships and our goals.


The flight Power Foundation

The flight Power Foundation is a non-profit organization that operates under the flightunit umbrella. Our foundation understands the different aspects of today’s student, from pop culture to social media, and we have kept this in mind while developing our programs. We are success-focused and are delighted for the opportunity to service today’s student body.

Feather #1: Me, Myself, and I

We are seldom aware of the power of our own presence. The presence of a single person can alter conversations and drastically change the overall mood. It is important to understand what type of influence we currently have and want to have on others.

Me, Myself, and I is the foundation principle of our “Feather” system. We have chosen this as our first Feather to emphasize the importance of self, self-awareness, and self-development. We believe that in order to advance in life, one must commit to their personal growth. Our daily choices dictate the boundaries of our growth – they can be our road to success or our path to failure. Discovering who we are is no simple task, but when we do, we unlock the keys to our success.

Questions for Reflection:
1) What motivates me?

2) What are my thoughts and beliefs?
a) Am I confident in them?

3) Who do I surround myself with?
a) What impact are they having on me?
b) What do we have in common?

4) Where do my thoughts take me when my mind wanders?
a) Are these thoughts positive and allow me to grow or are they negative and are harmful?

5) What are the major influences on my decision-making process? (e.g. personal success, public opinion, time commitments, ego, media, etc.)
a) Does how I spend my time reflect this?
b) How do these influences enrich me as a person?

Bonus Questions:
This Feather is so important for growth and success, we have provided bonus questions that will allow for a thorough self-examination.

6) Am I honest with myself and others?
a) Can others be brutally honest with me?

7) Am I aware of my mistakes?
a) Am I learning from them?

8) Which has a greater impact on my decisions, fear or courage?

9) Am I able to forgive others?
a) Am I able to forgive myself for my thoughts and actions?
b) Can I face conflict with the goal of reaching a resolution and learning from it?

10) What do I want people to say about me when I am not around them?

Benefits of Feather #1:
There’s an English writer named John Brown who said, “Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” Everything begins and ends with us. The choice to be phenomenal or to live a disappointing life lies within our hands. We are creatures of habit – it is crucial that we develop the right habits and a growth mindset for success. With the right mindset we can become unstoppable!

Feather #2: Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Health

Our physical, mental, and spiritual health play a significant role in shaping our ability to live life to the fullest. Although we are complex creatures, we are a single mind, body, and soul, and therefore everything we do impacts every aspect of our well-being. It is important to have balance to ensure that we are creating greater opportunities for growth, health, and happiness.

Questions for Reflection:
1) How physically active am I?

2) Do I take the time to learn what I am putting into my body?

3) Do I have faith in a higher power?

4) Am I aware of what causes me stress?
a) What do I do to de-stress?

5) Do I have a support system?
a) If so, who is a member of my support system?

2) Surround yourself with people that align with your definition of mind, body, and soul

Feather #3: My World

Our greatest life experiences are usually made by the people that we are with or the challenges that we face. Every day, we have the ability to be better people and to expand our view of the world. What we focus on is what we see. This is why all of our worlds are uniquely different. The people that we interact with can give our lives greater perspective, and the challenges that we conquer can give our lives greater meaning.

Questions for Reflection:
1) Am I making my world a better place? If so, in what way(s)?

3) Are the things and people that I devote my time to helping me grow into a better person?

4) What does my ideal world look like?

5) What things do I care most about (e.g. house, people, school, environment, countries, justice, electronic devices, etc.)?
a) Do my actions and interests reflect what I care most about?

Benefits of Feather #3:
Many times in life we miss exciting opportunities and experiences because we have created too small of a world for ourselves to live in. When we expand our world, we create new opportunities and chances for greater levels of growth and gratification.

Tips for success:
1) Take on the responsibility of making your world a better place
2) Be open-minded to new ideas so that you can expand your world

Passion can take a long time to discover but it is worth the pursuit. Passion is one of life’s greatest compasses. It is the driving force behind our purpose in life and has the ability to light up our soul. Passion pushes us and sparks creativity, excitement, ingenuity, and problem-solving. Passion takes on different forms and can be found in many areas of life including relationships, health, dreams, aspirations, interests, and hobbies.

Questions for Reflection:
1) What does passion mean to me?

2) What things am I most passionate about?
a) How do I show that passion?

3) Do my decisions take me out or keep me in my comfort zone?
a) Are my decisions spontaneous or planned?

Tips for success:
1) Explore and discover new areas of interests and passion

Feather #5: Enlightenment

The human brain is one of the most spectacular things within the universe. When this 3 pound object is on, it has the ‘power to move mountains’ and change the world. When we open our minds to learn our ability to grow as people is limitless. When we embrace a growth mindset it permits us, and those around us to have greater capacity to achieve or as Nelson Mandela put it, “as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same”.

1) Do I allow myself to step outside my comfort zone and try new things?

2) Am I surrounding myself with new ideas and interests/concepts?

3) Am I allowing stereotypes to define who I am? My interests?

4) On a daily basis, am I training myself for success or failure?

5) Do I have the courage to partake in conversations on new topics with my friends and/or new people?
a) In what ways might my conversations be limited?

Benefits of Feather #5:
The power of our minds is remarkable, the mind is responsible for our navigational & our breathing systems and so much more. Many leading medical journals (including the National Institute on Aging) have touched on the numerous benefits of learning and mental stimulation including renewing us and starving off diseases such Alzheimer and dementia. There are several ways to stimulate our mind such as; engaging conversation, playing a challenging game, learning to play a new instrument or learning to speak a new language, etc. These acts provide us with immeasurable returns on our lives. Below we have provided a diagram of the circle of healthy living.
