This winter and spring United Parish will offer the lifespan sexuality education program Our Whole Lives (OWL) for young people in 10th, 11th, and 12th grade. With a curriculum written by the United Church of Christ and Unitarian Universalist Association, OWL provides accurate, developmentally appropriate information about a range of topics, including relationships, gender identity, sexual orientation, sexual health, and cultural influences on sexuality.
This information is relayed in accordance with the values that OWL strives to promote: self-worth, sexual health, responsibility, and justice and radical inclusivity. The program recognizes and respects the diversity of participants with respect to biological sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and disability status and builds a learning environment where all experiences are included.
