Welcome to Facilitator Training for Our Whole Lives Sexuality Education for Grades 7-9 and 10-12.
Your trainers for this course are Hudson Nummerdor, an OWL trainer, independent sexuality educator and general manager for The Tool Shed, and Rev. Thea Racelis, an OWL trainer, educator, activist, and theologian. We’ll formally introduce ourselves during our first synchronous meeting, and you’re welcome to read our trainer bios. Throughout the course on video, you’ll also meet Amy Johnson, the Minister for Sexuality Education and Justice for the United Church of Christ.
We are pleased with your commitment to working with youth and teens, and we look forward to helping you meet your goals.
This course is presented in the form of Modules, or subject areas. Each Module is comprised of Topics that will facilitate your exploration and learning in the form of videos, readings, online discussions, assignments, and synchronous sessions. Your trainers will be available by email throughout the course to offer assistance and to answer questions; in addition, they will lead the synchronous sessions.
This course must be completed within one month from the start date, including all asynchronous and synchronous elements. This training is evaluative, meaning that completion of all elements doesn’t guarantee approval to facilitate. The trainers will communicate with you privately if they have concerns because their goal is to help you become an Our Whole Lives facilitator.
Let’s Get Started!
Please proceed to Module 1: Introduction, where you’ll find assignments.
