Earn While You Learn (EWYL) is an amazing program that has changed the lives of tens-of-thousands of men and women across the nation. It offers both hope and help to those who need it most. It helps women and couples learn, grow and understand how to be good parents to their children. This program creates generational changes in their communities that will save and change lives for many years to come.
The EWYL program consists of classes taken by parents to assist them in the care of their children. As you complete classes, you earn Mommy Money that you can spend in our Baby Boutique. Mommy Money is earned by completing lessons, turning in homework, keeping your appointments and, when applicable, the father attending lessons.
EWYL is made up of several modules, including Pregnancy, Parenting, Life Skills, Fatherhood, Special Circumstances and Bible Study. These modules are for the benefit of the child/children and help equip the parents to know what is best for their families.
The Pregnancy module covers the important information from the First Trimester to a few months after birth. These are a few examples of topics, Your First Nine Months, What’s Safe, What Isn’t, Your Changing Body, Reducing the Risk of SIDs, Newborn Care, Breastfeeding, and Quality Child Care.
The Parenting module consists of 10 modules covering the essentials of parenting including discipline techniques, setting boundaries, and the importance of parenting with love.
The Life Skills module teaches you how to make the right choices in the future and avoid basic mistakes. Life Skills cover subjects such a budgeting, money management, checking accounts, renting an apartment, how to shop for a used car, insurance, and how to find a job.
The Fatherhood module covers topics ranging from discipline to role modeling to spending time with the family. The content includes the reasons why it is important to do what is right along with inspiration for moving beyond those difficult moments.
After each lesson, you are given the opportunity to spend your Mommy Money in our Baby Boutique. The Baby Boutique is stocked with diapers, wipes, blankets, clothes (newborn to 24 months), formula, and baby food. We also have a great selection of maternity clothes.
