OWL–Our Whole Lives–Lifespan Sexuality Education
Honest, accurate information about sexuality changes lives. It dismantles stereotypes and assumptions, builds self-acceptance and self-esteem, fosters healthy relationships, improves decision making, and has the potential to save lives. For these reasons and more, we are proud to offer Our Whole Lives, a comprehensive, lifespan sexuality education curricula for use in both secular settings and faith communities.
Interactive workshops and lessons engage participants, while step-by-step instructions for program planners and facilitators help ensure success. Our Whole Lives helps participants make informed and responsible decisions about their sexual health and behavior. With a holistic approach, Our Whole Lives provides accurate, developmentally appropriate information about a range of topics, including relationships, gender identity, sexual orientation, sexual health, and cultural influences on sexuality.
The Unitarian Universalist Association and United Church of Christ created the OWL program which is intended for kindergartners through seniors in both religious and secular groups. The program facilitators are trained by the Unitarian Universalist Association and are volunteer members of the Chalice Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.
Samantha Dickerson, Director of Lifespan Religious Exploration (DLRE), can provide information on the current schedule of workshops.
