Our Whole Lives (OWL) is an excellent, comprehensive sexuality education program that offers participants the opportunity to explore their values, and gain accurate information about topics that are often not easily accessible. The overall goal of the Our Whole Lives program is to help participants gain the knowledge, values, and skills they need to lead sexually healthy, responsible lives.


Attendance Policy: These are very intensive workshops. Please come well-rested and ready to absorb a lot in a short time. PLEASE NOTE: IT IS REQUIRED that you attend ALL sessions of the facilitator training.
