Children & Youth
Our programs on Sunday mornings and throughout the week seek to empower our children and youth to ask deep questions and consider their own values and beliefs. We explore the rich framework of the Principles and Purposes of Unitarian Universalism and invite our participants into forging their own moral compass. These activities are led by experienced and well supported volunteer facilitators, many of whom are parents with kids in the program.
The role of Unitarian Universalist religious education is not to imprint our ideas on the minds of the young, but rather to foster creative discovery and intelligent examination. We believe that every one of us has a piece of the truth and that we are wiser together.
Middle and high school youth are nurtured and invited into a loving community. There are excellent groups and classes for youth including the sexuality education program Our Whole Lives. Sunday youth group sessions foster insightful and challenging discussions based on the monthly worship theme, enabling meaningful conversations between parents and youth throughout the week.
Our Whole Lives Sex Education
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. For these reasons and more, we are proud to offer Our Whole Lives (OWL), a comprehensive, lifespan sexuality education program.
