7th-8th Grade: Our Whole Lives (OWL)
Our Whole Lives (OWL) is a comprehensive sexuality education curriculum. It values:
- Self Worth
- Sexual Health
- Justice and Inclusivity
OWL models and teaches caring, compassion, respect, and justice. It helps adolescents address their attitudes, values, and feelings about themselves, their sexuality, and others’ sexuality. Participants are guided by trained facilitators through an engaging curriculum that addresses topics most important to young adolescents, including those typically excluded from sexuality education and health classes. Some topics: gender identity, body image, puberty, sexual orientation, healthy relationships, social media, and bullying.
OWL meets every other week or so, from 10-12:30.
