Earn While You Learn

Empowering you with the tools you need to be a great parent.

What is EWYL (Earn While You Learn)?

The Earn While You Learn program is offered by Family Resource Center of Zion free of charge and gives you the opportunity to earn clothing, diapers and furnishings for your new baby while developing parenting and life skills.

Who can participate?

All Family Resource Center clients are eligible to participate in Earn While You Learn during and after their pregnancy.

What can I learn?

The choice is yours. FRCZ offers a wide variety of classes and a DVD collection of more than 40 titles — all selected to address your questions and concerns.   The Center staff knows that you want to learn how to be good parents and raise a healthy, happy child.  We’re here to provide support and resources to help you reach that goal.

What will I earn?

We like to call them “Baby Bucks.” You earn vouchers at each session you attend that you can redeem for a wide assortment of baby clothes and other items your child needs. You can even store up your weekly vouchers to earn large items (when available) such as cribs, strollers, high chairs. The Baby Boutique carries baby clothing to size 24 months.

How long does it take to complete the program?

There are 40 different topics ranging from pregnancy, postpartum care, discipline, bonding and many more. You and the Family Resource Center advocate personalize a combination of lessons that are beneficial to you. You are free to complete all 40 topics or as many as you choose before your baby turns 2 years old.

How do I sign up?

Just stop by Family Resource Center or give us a call at (847)731-3860. It’s a great opportunity to learn to be a successful parent and help insure a bright future for you and your child.
