Our Whole Lives (OWL) is a comprehensive program on human sexuality with curriculum levels for all ages.  The grades 7-9 curriculum helps participants make informed and responsible decisions about their sexual health and behavior. The program embodies the values of self-worth, sexual health, responsibility, and justice/inclusivity.


Grounded in a holistic view of sexuality, OWL not only provides facts about anatomy and human development, but also helps participants clarify their values, build interpersonal skills, and understand the emotional and social aspects of sexuality.


The program will be held at UUCM, 246 S. Church St. in Grass Valley.  OWL participation requires pre-registration by August 31 and parent permission, including a mandatory parent orientation session, Saturday 9/7/19 at, 1:00 p.m. at UUCM.  OWL sessions will be held at UUCM beginning September 8, 10:30 – 12:30 (lunch provided!).  Program fee is $100.00. Scholarships are available.


Facilitators are Emily Gallup, certified OWL instructor and licensed marriage & family therapist (MFT), and Walt O’Maley, certified OWL instructor.
