Our Whole Lives (OWL) Facilitator Trainings are intended to prepare individuals to lead OWL programs in their community. This is a comprehensive, lifespan sexuality education curricula for use in both secular settings and faith communities. OWL Facilitators are required to be 21 years of age or at least four years older than the students at the level they will facilitate to teach in Unitarian Universalist congregational settings.

 

    • If your congregation does not currently have an OWL program, it is recommended to send a diverse teams of at least two people. If your congregation does have an established OWL program, you may send any number of prospective teachers.

    • Each level is limited to twenty participants, with a minimum of ten; we need to have at least six people registered by the early cutoff of June 29.  In the unlikely event that the minimum is not met, that level will be canceled and participants will be refunded the registration fee.
