New and Better!
Earn While You Learn is an amazing curriculum program that has changed the lives of tens-of-thousands of men and women across the nation. It has helped almost 1,000 Pregnancy Resource Centers offer both hope and help to those who need it most. It has increased the abortion vulnerable visits to their centers that has lead to many lives being saved. And, it has helped those very same women who chose life for their babies to learn, grow, and understand how to be good mothers to their children. Pregnancy Resource Centers using Earn While You Learn have made generational changes in their communities that will save and change lives for many years to come.
Earn While You Learn (EWYL) covers the many different topics Pregnancy Resource Centers (PRCs) use on a daily basis. The collection of lessons is now 200 strong with 40 different modules divided into 8 different packs. With such a large collection, Heritage House makes a constant and purposeful effort to keep the content and supplies up-to-date. Information changes, dress styles go in and out, and recommendations get more specific. To make sure that EWYL is as effective as possible we consistently replace older DVDs and re-write lessons that need a refresh.
We have worked hard to make the most important changes and get them ready for the 2013 year. The following changes have been made to EWYL this year:
We replaced the following DVDs:
- Baby to Be (Module 1, 2, 4)
- Baby Talk (Module 5, 8)
- Infant Massage and Development (Module 5)
- Baby Human
We updated the following DVDs (to new versions):
- Intelligent Money Management
- Apartment Renting 101
- Housecleaning 101
- Finding and Financing a Used Car
In addition to updating current lessons, we are always working to provide new lessons to fill the needs of PRCs. This year we added a much needed “Birth and Delivery” module as well as expanding the teaching for toddlers to a full 3-module pack. And, as requested by many centers, we added the “Interviewing for Jobs” module. Finally, we added a straight-forward “Practical Fatherhood” pack that teaches men simple lessons on how to be a good father.
We added the following modules:
Module 11: Birth and Delivery
Module L5: Interviewing for Jobs
Module PF1: Practical Fatherhood
Module PF2: Practical Fatherhood #2
Module T2: Toddler Pack #2
Module T3: Toddler Pack #3
Reaching Abortion Vulnerable Clients
If you are looking to increase your abortion vulnerable clients EWYL is one of the best and most proven method. While many tactics rely on cold-contacts (billboards, phone book, etc), EWYL creates an environment where your services are promoted between friends. The young women in your EWYL classes have circles of friends that include those who are the most abortion vulnerable. When an unplanned pregnancy occurs, many times it is to the friends that women first go - and those friends can tell them about your center. Most centers using EWYL dont just see a dramatic increase in visits for instruction - they also see a significant increase in abortion minded appointments.
EWYL Breaks the Cycle!
Giving things away free only enables our clients and fosters the entitlement mentality. With EWYL, clients come to you to learn how to be good parents. In the process, they form healthy bonds with their parenting instructors. In the end, they are able to walk out of your center with much needed items for their babies and a pride in their sense of accomplishment. The lessons they learn are crucial to the emotional and physical well being of their babies and break cycles of poor parenting, neglect and abuse.
EWYL is EFFECTIVE!
EWYL is written in an easy to use, easy to understand format. The lessons are presented using DVDs, worksheets, reading and verbal information with supporting graphics. Your clients will see, hear and read the information, then take home homework lessons that reinforce what they learned. When this information is presented by a parenting instructor who they come to know and respect, the results are dramatic and life changing.
EWYL is Easy and Complete
EWYL is simple to present and to understand. Each lesson comes with clear instructions and a supply list. The lessons have open ended questions and an answer sheet for the presenter. Each lesson has homework with an answer sheet. Its all there, ready to use. Centers across the country report that it is easier than they ever imagined to implement. Their lay counselors love it! And, they love the fact that they no longer feel like their center is a revolving door, just handing out diapers and clothes but not making an impact on their clients lives. They are finally able to establish long term relationships that allow them to make a difference in their clients lives with Gods love and wisdom!
