UU Wellesley is offering Our Whole Lives (OWL) for 7th and 8th graders in Wellesley and surrounding communities during the 2016-2017 school year on public school non-vacation Sundays from 5-6:30pm from September through May at 309 Washington St., Wellesley Hills. Register now for this free workshop series at http://uuwellesley.org/our-whole-lives-program – deadline is September 9th.
The OWL program provides an age-appropriate, positive and comprehensive sexuality and relationship curriculum that helps participants affirm and respect themselves as sexual persons (including their bodies, sexual orientation, feelings, etc.) and respect the sexuality of others. This workshop series is designed to meet the need for teens to have a safe space to develop the knowledge, values and skills that will enable them to lead sexually healthy, responsible lives. The OWL program is facilitated by trained volunteers from our own community, with many years of experience leading this curriculum.
Participating youth do not need to be members of UU Wellesley.
The OWL program was originally developed in cooperation between the Unitarian Universalist Association and the United Church of Christ. It is not, however, a faith-based program, and so is appropriate for youth of any background.
