Our Whole Lives

Honest, accurate information about sexuality dismantles stereotypes and assumptions, builds self-acceptance and self-esteem, fosters healthy relationships, improves decision making, and has the potential to save lives. We are proud to offer Our Whole Lives (OWL), a comprehensive, accurate, human sexuality education curriculum that presents age-appropriate information across the lifespan. (www.uua.org/re/owl).

Prairie RE has certified facilitators for OWL instruction from kindergarten through high school. Each year, we offer an OWL course for a particular age group. In 2020, from February through the end of the academic year, our students in grades 7-9 will have the opportunity to participate in comprehensive and inclusive lifespan sexuality education utilizing the OWL program jointly created by the UUA & the UCC churches. You can read more about OWL education here. Registration will begin in January.
