Students for Reproductive Justice invites you to attend a training to become a facilitator of Our Whole Lives in your faith community. This session will prepare you to teach children K1 through 6th grade the following OWL values: Self Worth, Sexual Health, Responsibility and Justice and Inclusivity. “Our Whole Lives helps participants make informed and responsible decisions about their sexual health and behavior. It equips participants with accurate, age-appropriate information in six subject areas: human development, relationships, personal skills, sexual behavior, sexual health, and society and culture

Grounded in a holistic view of sexuality, Our Whole Lives not only provides facts about anatomy and human development, but also helps participants clarify their values, build interpersonal skills, and understand the spiritual, emotional, and social aspects of sexuality” (http://www.uua.org/re/owl/ ) If you want to explore the intersection of sexuality and spirituality and bringing this discussion in a healthy way to your faith community this is the training for you! Note: Enrollment limited to 13 students.
