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, Prairie will host an OWL session for students in grades 4-6. You can read more about the learning objectives for 4th-6th OWL here. All are welcome to register – both kids who regularly attend as well as any and all friends and/or visitors who are interested. OWL stands for Our Whole Lives and is a 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 in general here. Registration will begin in January.
