Grades 8-9 and 11-12

OWL models and teaches caring, compassion, respect, and justice. It helps adolescents address their attitudes, values, and feelings about themselves, their sexuality, and others’ sexuality. Participants are guided by trained facilitators through an engaging curriculum that addresses topics most important to young adolescents, including those typically excluded from sexuality education and health classes.

Grades 8-9 (2009/2010 birthdays) OWL sessions on Sundays start this October after Thanksgiving. View all class dates on our calendar here.

Self-worth, Sexual Health, Responsibility, Justice and Inclusivity

Our Whole Lives builds confidence around issues related to sexuality; body, pleasure, communication, safety, health, consent, relationships, gender, identity, values, sense of self, and respect.

Our classes typically meet on Sunday afternoons October through May, although individual years may have an adjusted schedule based on participants availability. There is a required 2-hour parent orientation each time a child or teen enrolls in an Our Whole Lives series and participants are asked to make a commitment to prioritizing attendance in the program.
