Mission Statement

Oak Park Our Whole Lives's mission is to educate children and their families and caregivers about sexuality in a way that is comprehensive, holistic, and inclusive. We believe that physical and emotional pleasure and connection are a healthy and natural part of life. Many gender identities and sexual and romantic orientations are all part of the normal, natural range of human sexual experience. Our goal is to provide education on these topics to children and caring adults in Oak Park and the wider Chicago area.


The Oak Park Our Whole Lives program was started in 2016 by two Oak Park working mothers who wanted the Oak Park area to have more options for quality sexuality education. OP-OWL uses trained facilitators and a nationally-recognized, standards-based curriculum to engage in developmentally appropriate discussions about bodies, gender, sexuality, values, health, consent, and responsibility (among other things!) with elementary and middle school students. Classes are available to students in Oak Park and surrounding areas.

The Our Whole Lives curriculum is a sexuality education curriculum developed by the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) and the United Church of Christ (UCC). It is designed to help participants make informed and responsible decisions about their sexual health and behavior. The Oak Park program is open to people of all faiths and does not include any religious or faith-based content.
