"Our son has attended the Adventures Seekers program for the past two years and has benefited through the special learning environment that CNC has offered in the community. This has provided him with social and emotional interaction and he would not be where he is today if not for this program." ~ Sheryl

This program is designed for young adults aged 18–30 who have a severe to moderate developmental disability, have completed their secondary education and have a strong interest in learning. It is expected that they will require a support worker (the provision of the support worker is the participant’s responsibility).


Through individual and group learning, the goal of Adventure Seekers is to:

  • increase and maintain functional literacy
  • support individual growth
  • increase College and community participation
Program Outline

Adventure Seekers is a part-time program (eight hours per week). Students meet as a group two days a week for four hours with an instructor. The program covers topics of relevance and interest to the participants and can include:

  • Current events 
  • Arts: music, film, literature 
  • Computer technology: e-mail, the Internet, PowerPoint 
  • Science

Courses and delivery will be modified to suit individual capabilities and interests. Functional literacy is integrated into the program through a focus on: 

  • Communication skills
