TEMPE – Earn While You Learn is a program offered at the Aid to Women Pregnancy and Medical Clinic in Tempe. As part of the program, young mothers and fathers earn baby items when they take prenatal, parenting or life lessons classes. The clinic started this program to help young mothers get the resources they need to become good parents because often they are unprepared. The program is free, and parents can take the classes from the time the mother becomes pregnant up until the child is 1. Some of the items they earn include free diapers, clothes or points toward larger items like strollers and bassinets.
