OWL: Our Whole Lives

Our Whole Lives: Sexuality Education

Knowledge is power.

Honest and accurate information about sexuality is a core part of our religious education curriculum for all age groups.  Education around human sexuality is an important aspect of the spiritual practice of welcoming.

Educating individuals, and the church community as a whole, breaks down stereotypes and assumptions, builds self-acceptance, self-esteem, fosters healthy relationships, improves decision making, and has the potential to save lives.

Our Whole Lives is a comprehensive, lifespan sexuality education curricula endorsed by the Unitarian Universalist Association and is offered in both faith communities and secular settings such as public and private schools, after school programs, charter schools, and home schooling environments.

OWL Values

Our Whole Lives covers topics and skills that both parents and students want to have available but schools are less likely to cover. The OWL curriculum focuses on clear messages about the following sexuality issues such as self worth, sexual health, responsibility, justice and inclusivity.

OWL programs are designed to recognize and respect the diversity of participants with respect to biological sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and disability status. The activities and language used are carefully chosen to be as inclusive as possible of this human diversity.

Amazing things happen when we get together.
