guiding youth with love and compassion

Our mission is to empower youth with the skills, knowledge, and resources they need to become independent, responsible, and engaged members of their communities. Through our programs and services, we aim to create a brighter future for all youth.


Our vision is to create a world where all youth have the opportunity to thrive, regardless of their background or circumstances. We aspire to inspire and empower the next generation of leaders who will make a positive impact on society.


Our mandate is to provide programs and services that promote the growth and well-being of youth. We are committed to creating safe, inclusive, and empowering spaces where youth can develop the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in life.

Need a STEM Workshop?

Whale Hope’s goal is to provide opportunity. To achieve this goal we offer STEM workshops to enrich the minds of the next generation… Many youth are intimidated, unaware, or uninterested in STEM. Exposing youth to STEM brings awareness to the infinite opportunities within STEM disciplines. Our STEM workshops are lead by Dr. Kyle Morton, who is a 15+ year veteran in STEM research. The focus of each workshop is to demonstrate that STEM is fun, easy, and something everyone can do.
Our projects are:

Each youth will walk away with an experience that will lead them to endless opportunities.

Let Whale of Hope host your next STEM workshop!

Ways to Help

You know what is the best way to make the world a peaceful place to live? Compassion!

We don’t realize that our compassion or a little help can actually change someone’s life. A small deed of kindness goes a long way. You can touch the life of a child who truly needs your help by simply sponsoring or volunteering. And the most amazing thing about it is that it won’t take too much of your time. Even a small donation of your money or time can help a child live a purposeful life.

At Whale of Hope, we’re always in search of sponsors and volunteers because running a non-profit organization without the assistance of others is quite challenging. In order to ensure that the youth is provided the best services, the volunteers receive training and supervision from our professional staff. This helps in making sure that the volunteers can best leverage their skills, knowledge, and interests to positively impact the lives of those we serve.
