The Adult Enrichment Center was founded in 2013, in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. The program was designed to help young adults who are transiting from the secondary education system into adulthood or for those who are looking to develop, enhance and introduce new skills that are required on a personal level or within their community. Our management and team focus on top quality, qualified staff, excellent supports and community leadership has allowed it to grow into one of Sudbury’s largest programs. It was the first privately owned and operated day program in Northern Ontario. We specialize in an individualized program for individuals with developmental and mental health struggles.
Our programs main focus is to allow clients to learn, develop and enhance life skills.
We also promote independence, volunteering and employment opportunities within the community.
Adult Enrichment Center partnered with YMCA Sudbury in January 2017. This allowed individuals to participate within a community based program to learn and develop skills that are required in the workplace. It also promoted health and physical fitness.
Within one year, Adult Enrichment Center expanded and opened a second and third location within the greater city of Sudbury. Two years later, Adult Enrichment Center opened its doors in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario and is now expanding into other Northern and Southern locations.
In addition to our stand-alone centers, Adult Enrichment Center locations can also be found in YMCA locations. Most standard Adult Enrichment Center locations offer services 7 days a week, providing Family Relief and Respite Care Services to our clients.
