Our Whole Lives of God Training Event

     Our Whole Lives is a comprehensive, kindergarten through adult sexuality education curriculum series. It provides youth with accurate information on sexual health, human development, sexual behavior, relationships, and personal skills in the supportive setting of their faith community. This workshop trains teachers in how to teach participants about sexuality in age-appropriate ways. The workshop will focus on the curricula for grades 7-9 and 10-12.

     To be certified as Our Whole Lives teachers, individuals are expected to: demonstrate a commitment to a values-based, comprehensive sexuality education; have a willingness to affirm the Our Whole Lives program goals, values, and philosophy; have an ability to provide a safe, engaging learning environment; and have an appreciation for working with people of diverse races, cultures, ages, abilities, and sexual and gender orientations. Two adults are required to be present at all times whenever Our Whole Lives is taught. Therefore, if a church or organization wants to teach Our Whole Lives, two adults (preferably different genders) need to attend a training.
