Our Whole Lives is a comprehensive values-based sexuality education program, with age-appropriate curricula fo: grades K-1, grades 4-6, grades 7-9, and grades 10-12. The curriculum is rooted in our Unitarian Univeraslist value of the inherent worth and dignity of all people.
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.

Grades 7-9 A sexuality education program for youth that models and teaches caring, compassion, respect, and justice. A holistic program that moves beyond the intellect to address the attitudes, values, and feelings that youth have about themselves and the world. Unlike many other sexuality curricula currently available, this program is comprehensive and progressive. In an inclusive and developmentally appropriate manner, it addresses sensitive topics that are typically excluded. Topics include sexuality and body awareness, relationships, gender and diversity, sexual orientation and gender identity, and responsible sexual behavior and safety.
High School Using a comprehensive approach, this program helps senior-high youth gain the knowledge, life principles and skills they need to express their sexuality in life-enhancing ways.
