Parents are children’s primary teachers, but most often society is teaching our children about sexuality. Our Whole Lives (OWL) is an antidote to sexualized media messages, peer pressure, misinformation and prejudice. It provides accurate, age-appropriate information, puts sexuality in the context of values and personal responsibility, supports healthy decision making and strengthens social skills. These skills and values help prepare youth to make healthy choices for life.
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.
If you have a high school child who would be interested, please contact us.
