Health and Wellness

Through our Health and Wellness Program, we aim to improve the quality of life for participants at Opportunity Networks. Activities are varied and constantly changing to expose individuals to new experiences that promote the development of social skills, learning to follow instruction, and overall general health and well-being. Our staff and Health and Wellness coordinators work together to identify  individual’s interests and achievements in order to create challenging programs that result in a sense of accomplishment. We facilitate dance, Zumba, yoga, Wii Fitness, and basketball in our movement room. The weekly schedule also includes time at the Merrimack YMCA, the Nashua Sports Academy, The Dance Company, Leda Lanes, and during nicer weather we visit Mines Falls and other local parks.
