The UU Fellowship of Durango offers a safe and inclusive space for middle and high school youth to explore faith, values, roles in the community and to engage in social justice.
Coming of Age
We offer a Coming of Age program at UUFD for middle school youth. During this program, youth are provided with a vetted adult mentor and encouraged to think deeply about their faith.
Of course we do not expect our middle school youth to have all the answers, instead we expect them to consider a wide range of faith topics. We consider this program the launching pad for a life time of spiritual searching.
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 curricula for use in both secular settings and faith communities.
“Taking Flight” is adapted from Our Whole Lives for online presentation. Themes include:
- Understanding sexuality and values
- Sexual language
- Anatomy and physiology
- Gender identity and expression
- STI’s and contraception
- Decision making
- Communicating with a sexual partner
Taking Flight is tentatively scheduled for the fall of 2020. For more information, contact our Interim Director of Faith Formation, Sara Sautter here.
