What is Our Whole Lives?

OWL models and teaches caring, compassion, respect, and justice. It helps high school‐age youth address their attitudes and values, their feelings about themselves and their sexuality, and their attitudes toward others’ sexuality. Participants in grades 10‐12 are guided by trained facilitators through an engaging curriculum that addresses topics typically excluded from sexuality education and health classes.
