OWL: sexuality education program

Our Whole Lives (OWL) sexuality education program

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 and relationships education curricula delivered in age groupings from age 5 to adult. Our Whole Lives helps participants make informed and responsible decisions about their sexual health and behavior. With a holistic approach, OWL provides accurate, developmentally appropriate information about a range of topics, including relationships, gender identity, sexual orientation, sexual health, and cultural influences on sexuality.

A big thank you to those who have become accredited OWL facilitators and to those who have already stepped forward to create our UFP OWL Planning Team!
