FAMILY Arts @ WHALER's Creation was developed to promote foster care and adoption to the general community and provide foster/adopted youth jobs skills training. Our eight weeks job training programs are developed to help foster youth gain the skills and knowledge needed to obtain entry-level positions in the arts and media.
FAMILY Arts is the name of WHALER's Creation programs and services. WHALER's Creation is the name of the organization. "W.H.A.L.E.R." is an acronym consisting of the first letters of people who inspired the development of WHALER's Creation by their love and deep devotion to family and the community: "Willie, Hattie, Augustus, Lillie, Earl, and Rebecca"
The organization is overseen by a hands-on board of directors with a two-year committment to the organization. Board members can serve another two years, concluding a full term. Our board or directors, staff and volunteers consists of former foster youth, adoptees, mentors, chefs, entertainers, media professions, social workers, business owners, law makers, students and educators.
FAMILY Arts @ WHALER's Creation believe that every child should have a special family bond regardless if its a biological bond or not. Many times, foster youth will bond with friends or others with whom a sage and positive relationship has developed.
We understand that it does not matter how "family" ties are connected, but rather that the connection is made.
It takes a community to guide children to become amazing, productive adulthoods.
Foster and adoptive parents - as well as mentors are needed to support, love and life-long connections to our most vulerable youth. Foster Youth has a greater sense of urgency!
