Our Whole Lives (OWL) is a comprehensive, holistic and secular lifespan sexuality education program for six age groups:  grades K-1, grades 4-6, grades 7-9, grades 10-12, young adults (ages 18-35), and adults.  The curricula are based on the Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education produced by the National Guidelines Task Force, a group of leading health, education, and sexuality professionals assembled by the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS).

Currently, UUCD offers the 7-9 grade OWL level opposite of the Coming of Age program. Participants n the 7-9 grade OWL 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. It provides accurate and age appropriate factual information, models and teaches caring, compassion, respect, and justice, and helps adolescents address their attitudes, values, and feelings about themselves, their sexuality, and others’ sexuality.
