Our Whole Lives (OWL) is a program developed by professional sexuality educators to provide accurate, age-appropriate information on sexuality and relationships. OWL programs for one or more age-groups are offered at Neighbourhood in most years. (Programs are offered for Kindergarten-Gr. 1, Gr. 4-6, Gr 7-9, and Gr. 10-12).
Grounded in a holistic view of sexuality, OWL programs provide facts about anatomy and human development, and also help participants clarify their values, build interpersonal skills, and explore the spiritual, emotional and social aspects of their bodies, relationships and sexuality.
Our OWL teachers go through a screening process and are trained and certified to facilitate OWL programming by the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA).

We are currently running a 7-9 OWL program in conjunction with the Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Durham and the Unitarian Fellowship of Peterborough in the 2016-17 program year. Please check back next year for more opportunities to become involved in OWL at NUUC.
