Teen Sexual Health Education Offered In The Cape Region
The Unitarian Universalists of Southern Delaware and Safe Harbor United Church of Christ are offering Our Whole Lives, a sexuality education class, for teens in 10th-12th grades. This class 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. The Our Whole Lives values are: self-worth, sexual health, responsibility, justice and inclusivity. The curriculum is based on the Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education produced by the National Guidelines Task Force and the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS). Although developed by two religious organizations, Our Whole Lives contains no religious references or doctrine. Religious references are provided in a Unitarian Universalist and United Church of Christ companion publication Sexuality and Our Faith.
Our Whole Lives will be offered from April 15-June 16 at the Unitarian Universalists of Southern Delaware in Lewes, Delaware. The class is facilitated by certified trainers who have undergone extensive training and background checks. Before a child may be enrolled, parents must attend a four hour orientation session on Sunday, March 25, 2012, 12 noon, at Unitarian Universalists of Southern Delaware, 33739 Marsh Road, #2, Lewes, DE 19958-6334.
