OUR WHOLE LIVES: LIFESPAN SEXUALITY EDUCATION
Honest, accurate information about sexuality changes lives. It dismantles stereotypes and assumptions, builds self-acceptance and self-esteem, fosters healthy relationships, improves decision making, and has the potential to save lives. For these reasons and more, we are proud to offer Our Whole Lives (OWL), a comprehensive, lifespan sexuality education curricula for use in both secular settings and faith communities.
Interactive workshops and lessons engage participants, while step-by-step instructions for program planners and facilitators help ensure success. Six curricula speak to participants’ needs, by age group:
• grades K-1
• grades 4-6
• grades 7-9
• grades 10-12
• young adults
Our Whole Lives helps participants make informed and responsible decisions about their sexu-al health and behavior. With a holistic approach, Our Whole Lives provides accurate, develop-mentally appropriate information about a range of topics, including relationships, gender identity, sexual orientation, sexual health, and cultural influences on sexuality.
KVUUC is offering grades K-1 starting this April.
