Our Whole Lives: Sexuality Education for Grades 7-9

August 10, 2013 No Comments

Parents are children’s primary teachers, but what is society teaching our children about sexuality?   Our Whole Lives is an antidote to sexualized media messages, peer pressure, misinformation and prejudice.  It provides accurate, age-appropriate information, puts sexuality in the context of values and personal responsibility, supports healthy decision making, and strengthens social skills.   These skills and values help prepare youth to make healthy choices for life.  For more information about the program check curriculum description,  or this article in Christian Century Magazine.

If you have (or will have) an incoming 7th, 8th, or 9th grade youth this fall, and would like to hear more about the curriculum or want to sign up to have your youth participate in the program,  please contact Leslie Lemieux, our OWL Coordinator or the church office (uucil@sbcglobal.net).   (The class runs from September 2013 through May 2014.)
