BrightCourse Pregnancy & Parenting Education

Programming is free and is open to you and your partner during a pregnancy and until your child turns three years old.

All lesson materials are available both on-site at the PRC and virtually through our BrightCourse streaming service. You choose the lesson topics and work through the material at your own pace. Or join with a friend or two and watch as a group!

Trained peer consultants will call or meet with you periodically to answer your questions, provide information about community resources, and share in the journey of your pregnancy.

For every lesson completed, you earn PRC “Baby Bucks” that can be used to gather needed infant clothing, diapers, wipes and more.
