In an assessment of sexuality education curricula by the Virginia Healthy Sexuality Workgroup of the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance, the Our Whole Lives program (OWL) was among four recommended as "promising healthy sexuality curricula" in terms of their ability to prevent harmful/risky behaviors.
"This report supports our anecdotal findings that OWL helps participants make sexual decisions that demonstrate respect for themselves and for others," said Melanie J. Davis, OWL Program Associate for the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA).
The October, 2011 report is available online (PDF). OWL is discussed on pages 6 and 10.
The workgroup included representatives of Advocates for Youth, Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington DC, Big Brothers Big Sisters, the Virginia Anti-Violence Project, NARAL Virginia, the Action Alliance, and several local sexual violence prevention agencies.
