Earn While You Learn

EWYL is a program intended for parents and expecting parents. Through this program, moms and dads watch Brightcourse videos online, and complete homework in order to earn “Baby Bucks”.

Fertility Awareness (7th & 8th Grade) – Coming soon!

The target audience for this presentation is younger girls, just entering puberty. Our goal for this program is that young girls would know the beauty of their bodies and the reverence they deserve. We believe that the more young women know about their body and the truth of sexuality, the better they will respect it when they grow older.
