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, strength training, martial arts and many more. The weekly schedule also includes time at the local YMCA’s, Title Boxing, Amherst Fitbody Bootcamp, Bellami Dance, Leda Lanes, and during nicer weather we visit Mines Falls and other local parks.
