Our Whole Lives, or OWL, is a lifespan human sexuality program developed by the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations in partnership with the United Church of Christ. This comprehensive program offers honest, accurate, and age-appropriate information for children as young as kindergarten through adults.
Here at UUFA, our OWL program is separate from our regular Sunday morning religious education classes, and parents must attend an orientation session before committing to the program.
Our OWL programs are fee-based. Collecting fees ensures that we are able to continue sending qualified adults to the intensive weekend training each program year. A limited number of full and partial scholarships are offered upon request.
We currently offer three levels of OWL:
OWL for grades 7-9
This program runs during the entire program year, beginning in each ODD year. This level of OWL consists of twelve 3- or 4-hour classes on Sunday afternoons.
Visit these UUA webpages for specific curriculum information:
OWL for grades 4-6
