General Information About Our Whole Lives (OWL)

Our Whole Lives (OWL) is a lifespan curriculum for comprehensive sexuality education.  The First Unitarian Universalist Society is proud to offer these age-appropriate classes for groups from kindergarten through adult.

Joint Effort

The creation of this extensive curriculum has been a joint effort of the Unitarian Universalist Association and the United Church Board for Homeland Ministries of the United Church of Christ.

What You'll Get

OWL has been designed for use in secular as well as religious settings. Participants are given knowledge, principles and life skills that will help them express their sexuality in life-enhancing ways.


As a faith community we want to promote justice for all. We affirm the dignity of the individual as well as the interdependence of all people and the importance of individual responsibility. Sexual expression can be a means to encounter the spiritual and enrich one's life. For these reasons, we take an active role in promoting human sexuality education and justice by offering these classes.


Here are flyers for some of the OWL levels:

Kindergarten and First Grade - we plan to offer this in 2017-18.

Fourth through Sixth Grades - offered in 2016-17, and planned for 2018-19.

Seventh through Ninth Grades - offered annually.

Adult - we hope to offer again soon!
