Through our Day Program, individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities explore many different avenues to support personal independence and promote social, physical and emotional well-being.

Day Program classes at The Enrichment Center include Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Culinary Arts and Functional Life Skills. All classes are geared toward increasing and maintaining skills that assist individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in being an integrated part of their community. Classes are enhanced by our partnership with Forsyth Technical Community College, which provides curriculum development and progress assessments.  

Specifically, classes and activities offered through the Day Program are designed to develop and maintain skills in:

  • Communication and language development.
  • Health and safety skills.
  • Money management.
  • Independent living skills.
  • Socialization with peers and the community through integration.
  • Advocating for rights, needs and choices.

The Enrichment Center's Day Program students care deeply about helping others, and actively volunteer throughout the community with a variety of organizations including: Forsyth Humane Society, Hoof & Paw Therapeutic Riding Center, Kaleideum, Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest NC, SECU Family House, Senior ServicesThe Special Children's School, Twin City Kiwanis Club and the William G. White, Jr. Family YMCA.
