Our Whole Lives

The Our Whole Lives program is a comprehensive, accurate, and developmentally appropriate human sexuality curriculum available for kindergarten aged children through senior adulthood. Developed to meet or exceed the National Sexuality Education Standards, Our Whole Lives empowers participants to make informed, responsible decisions about their sexual health and behavior.

Our Whole Lives is a secular curriculum, but it isn’t without values. We believe that these values are a critical component of sexual education:

  • self-worth
  • sexual health
  • responsibility
  • justice and inclusivity

Honest, accurate information about sexuality changes lives. It dismantles stereotypes and assumptions, builds self-acceptance and self-esteem, fosters healthy relationships, improves decision making, and has the potential to save lives.
