Our Whole Lives (OWL) is a comprehensive, evidence-based sexuality class that UUs helped develop to teach how to value our sacred bodies and our sexuality throughout the lifespan. From the UUA website:

While Our Whole Lives is secular, it is not value-free. The program gives clear messages about the following key sexuality issues:

self worth
sexual health
responsibility
justice and inclusivity

Our Whole Lives recognizes and respects the diversity of participants with respect to biological sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and disability status. The activities and language used throughout the program have been carefully chosen to be as inclusive as possible of this human diversity.

OWL at UUCV

Every year between September and June, we will offer an OWL class at UUCV. Each class will focus on a specific age group, and every year we will rotate which age group is selected based on interest. Here is our upcoming schedule:

Fall 2019: Grades K-1 (ages 5-7) [Registration now open! Register by 8/25]

Spring 2020: Adult OWL (18+)

Fall 2020 – Spring 2021: Grades 7-9 (ages 12-14)

These classes are free for UU members and their children, and open to community members for a fee (sliding scale available).

If you or your child(ren) are interested in participating in OWL or if you have questions about the program, contact Emily Crutcher, Director of Lifespan Faith Development: re@uucv.org.
