Our Whole Lives


ACE Kids K-12 / Life Skills -
Winter 2022

Our Whole Lives (OWL) is a comprehensive sexuality education class that equips teens with accurate, age-appropriate information and skills to help them lead sexually healthy, positive and responsible lives. Grounded in a holistic view of sexuality, OWL addresses a wide range of topics including body image, relationships, social media/Internet, sexual orientation, gender identity, sexually transmitted infections, birth control and cultural influences on sexuality. Through engaging activities and discussions, OWL helps teens to clarify their own values and to build their interpersonal skills. Our Whole Lives is used nationwide in a variety of community settings including schools, youth-serving agencies and faith-based communities. OWL is completely secular and contains no religious doctrine. To learn more, visit www.uua.org/re/owl

Note: This program includes a mandatory parent meeting on Thursday, January 6.
