Enrichment Day Programs

Our Approach 

At Exceptional Futures, we foster lifelong learning, emphasizing active, hands-on, age-appropriate learning with real life applications. 

When people work with individuals with special needs, they often focus on weaknesses. We focus on developing strengths.

A happy person has purpose, the opportunity for growth, and exposure to new experiences.

Our programs are designed to: 

Empower Members

We develop experience-based programming to empower and encourage our members to explore their passions.

Foster Collaboration

Because we all have differing abilities, our members learn teamwork skills including communication and problem-solving.

Inspire Growth

Since the process is more important than the result, our members learn to capitalize on their strengths, adapt as needed, and focus on growth.

Build Community 

By modeling acceptance and collaboration, we foster a family atmosphere where everyone is a valued member of the team.

How Our Members Give Back

Our members get out into the community where they can interact, volunteer, meet people, and learn new things, just like anyone else their age.

Through engaging volunteer projects such as community gardens, delivering meals to the elderly and more, our members gain a sense of purpose and fulfillment. We find appropriate sites where they can use and build their skills to make a difference.

Exceptional Futures is a place where you want to be,

and that is the perfect environment to thrive.
