OWL: Our Whole Lives
Sexuality Education for 7th & 8th Graders
The Unitarian Society of Germantown offers OWL – Our Whole Lives Sexuality Education Program for 7th and 8th graders – every other year. This remarkable program is taught across the United States at Unitarian Universalist Congregations. People say this was one of the most valuable experiences they had as Unitarian Universalist teens.
OWL is a nationally recognized program that was co-developed by the UUA and the United Church of Christ denomination. The UUA website reports, “In a 2011 assessment of sexuality education curricula by the Virginia Healthy Sexuality Workgroup of the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance, the Our Whole Lives program (OWL) was among four recommended as “promising healthy sexuality curricula” in terms of their ability to prevent harmful/risky behaviors.”
USG has a dedicated teaching team. They are include the lead teacher, Dr. Andrea Barsevick, RN, Eric Foster, Aubrey Ramos and Aaron Rosenbaum, an experienced OWL teacher and member of BuxMont UU Fellowship.
OWL will be offered in 2018-19. Contact Director of Spiritual Development, Ryan Hurd at firstname.lastname@example.org or Eric Foster at email@example.com for more information.
