Event Description:

Grinnell UCC is pleased to be able to once again offer Our Whole Lives, a comprehensive, inclusive, age-appropriate and fact-based sexuality education program. This year we will be offering the junior high curriculum, for students in grades 7 and 8.

Our Whole LIves (OWL) provides accurate, age-appropriate infromation, puts sexuality in the context of values and personal responsibility, supports healthy decision-making, and strengthens social skills. The curriculum models and teaches caring, compassion, respect, and justice. Participants are guided by tained facilitators through an engaging curriculum that addresses topics most important to young adolescents, including those typically excluded from secuality education and health classes.
