What is Earn While You Learn?
Earn While You Learn (EWYL) is a FREE educational program where you can learn about pregnancy, baby care, nursing, health & safety, child rearing and much more from a trusted source. Most of the lessons are approximately 30 minutes long but we do have some that are longer.
Becoming a parent for the first time can be frightening which is why the Canon City Pregnancy Center wants to provide our community with every tool available to equip & educate new and established families.
Earn While You Learn isn't just a curriculum but a way to make real and permanent changes in today’s society by providing useful knowledge and training that will impact generations to come.
How Does it Work?
We have a large library to choose from. Decide which subject you want to learn more about:
- Newborn Care
- Child Growth
- Health & Safety
- For Mom's & Dad's
- Bible Study
You can choose multiple subjects if you like. Mark the lessons you would like take. Make sure to mark as many as you can, that way if you decide to earn additional items there are more lessons to choose from.
Call us at 719-275-7074 to make an appointment. Currently the Earn While You Learn appointments are scheduled Tuesdays & Thursdays during normal business hours.
Each lesson includes a quick discussion and a homework assignment. Don't worry the homework is easy to do and you won't be graded! You can complete it at the center or take it home. Once the homework is complete you receive credit for the lesson.
