Our Whole Lives
OWL is comprehensive human sexuality curricula developed jointly by the Unitarian Universalist Association and the United Church of Christ.
The program provides participants with accurate, age-appropriate information in six subject areas: human development, relationships, personal skills, sexual behavior, sexual health, and society and culture.
It helps participants make informed and responsible decisions about their sexual health and behavior. Grounded in a holistic view of sexuality, OWL provides not only facts about anatomy and human development, but helps participants to clarify their values, build interpersonal skills, and understand the spiritual, emotional, and social aspects of sexuality.
Both youth and parents frequently describe the program as an invaluable gift that is helpful, fun, transformative, and safe. See https://www.uua.org/re/owl for additional information on OWL.
